      With clay pigs or other non-glazed pottery used for cooking - I have seen people who use them all the time - especially those who use tajines they soak the pot in water and then use it to cook. Again do not use it over a naked flame.

      My two cents worth.

If you want to pre-heat it, put water or oil in it, pre-heat and then dump it out before you add your food. Hang it above the fire or pull coals under it; do not set it directly in the fire. Do not pour something cold into a hot, dry clay pot, or it will crack.
