Interesting. I have one of these on my dads old 18" OTS. Will try this mod but do think it would make it a pain to add wood. I find I need to add wood after every couple pies to keep the heat up around 700 or so. But I guess I fall into the inventors target audience.
Latest fun thing with this is making deep dish in a cast iron skillet.
