I don't have a BGE, but I have sever Weber kettles and a performer. I sacrificed an old 22.5" kettle lid and went to work with the angle grinder. Pic attached. I close the top vent, and leave the bottom wide open. That pulls the heat over the top of the pizza. On the grate, I have laid 5 or 6 thin sized fire brick. I load 4 weber charcoal baskets with a chimney full of lump, and get the oven up to 600-700 in no time. I stand back with a cold one and with my IR heat gun and point the laser dot at the fire brick. When those get 400 or so I slide the pizza on off the peel. I've never used a BGE, but thought maybe you could prop the lid open 4" with a couple fire bricks and accomplish the same draft effect.
