More progress to report.
I bought a 15" pizza stone to use as the roof. I attached it to the top grate using a nut, bolt and some washers. I purposely positioned the
stone so it was closer to the back edge. I'm hoping I can create some draft up and over the stone near the front where the opening is larger.

Here it is installed in the kettle. I put the stone on the upper side of the grate just because I like it being held in there. If I can't get a
hot enough temp on the top, the grate can be flipped over so the stone is on the bottom and closer to the pizza.

Then I finished cutting in the fire brick so there's not a big gap in the front:

And here's what it looks like inside the completed "oven".

To make sure the top doesn't fall off during use I fashioned some clamps around the rim of the bottom kettle.


With just the 2 clamps in place the whole unit is much sturdier, but I plan on adding 1 more clamp. I am able to pick the entire thing up and move it around. It's heavy, but not much worse than my UDS with the grates and charcoal basket in it.

Only thing left to do now is try it out, Friday night is lookin like her maiden voyage.

Seriously cool pizza oven. I've always wondered if I bought a couple of used OTS's from CL to use the lids what the heck would I do with the bases.....NOW I know!!


I want to build one of these NOW....

Thought I'd bump this back to the top with all the recent "how to cook pizza on a kettle" threads.
