You can weld it just fine. Take a die grinder and grind out the outside crack to a V and fill it with a Mig welder and standard wire. That will burn off the stuff on the inside and just run a patch cover pass over that after wire brushing it. Don't fast cool it, but don't bury it in sand or anything to slow cool it either. Set it someplace out of the wind and let it cool naturally.
