    Seems much less complicated to me
    I tried that before, but the fire was still too close.

    I think the distance might be more appropriate if the charcoal grate, for certain conditions, might be on the lower cooking rack? It was just an idea, after I read it somewhere on this site.

    Arun, you always seem to be trying to do things the most convoluted manner ever conceived, you remind me of me!
    Good luck, now I’m off to see if I can find my buddy with a diamond saw to cut some pizza stones to fit my gasser, they’re too long by 1/2” drat it! I do crazy tings too!

    Last night I finished up the clean up of the $10 dollar kettle. I replaced the sweepers, and reattached the old single side table support, fixed the torn out wire tray attachment on the front leg and, installed the Pizzaque array, too much going on to test fire that this week but, soon.


    Enjoy trying the reworked kettle.

    I think I'll also try taking the measurements of the setup, to see how much of a difference it would really make.

    James N posted them, but I should check for myself.

    Yes! That's what I was reading a few days ago. Thanks for finding it.

    Not sure if I want to do it, but I wanted to see what others thought of the idea, since it's on this site.

    It was just something to think about.
