wow, I just saw these mods and they look like they work great!  I seem to be a day late and a dollar short lately it seems!  I had a Lynx gas grill (if you know what they are, then you know how good they are and how hot they get >:D) and I sold it and my Stumps Smoker and picked up a Primo Ceramic cooker.....mainly to consolidate my cooking, but also thinking that I would be able to create great pizza's on the Primo! :-[ :-[  Needless to say, there are some drawbacks using a BGE or a Primo as a pizza oven, and here I could be cranking my old Lynx up to 1000 degrees and for a few bucks had a great pizza oven! >:( >:( >:(  I am almost tempted to pick u p another gas grill but I think the wife would about shoot me...she already thinks my LBE project is way out in left field!

 :-D I'd be kicking my own arse too.  :-D  I was really tempted to pull the trigger on a grill with a rotisserie burner not long ago b/c Craig's Pies look so AWESOME.  Lowe's has a few of these cheapo grills for around $300 I think.  Remember though, it's not just the tool but how one wields it.  ;D  Results will vary and every oven has it's pluses and minuses, even WFOs.  It will likely take a bit of time to dial in as well.

It's been a couple years since I've done a pie in the grill. I think the grill is very happy about that.

How did you get the bubbling on the crust like you would on a wfo?

Top heat management - you can see how much high-temp insulation I have stacked up on the lid of the bbq. That and fairly powerful burners.

Most have graduated/evolved into other cookers and ovens! Craig the most with an Acunto oven in his garage and a couple of Pizza Party ovens!!!

I had the same grill that basically disintegrated on the inside! Replaced the burners once but all those little support structures, drip tray, all fell apart. Gave it to a friends son in law to tinker with and he ended up scraping it! Nice grill while it lasted!!

I've rebuilt the guts of mine at least 4 times over the past 15 years. Needs it again.

Mine had it's day, we don't cook like we used to, it sat idle most of the time! I missed the rotisserie function on it so I bought a rotisserie ring for my Weber Kettle that works well enough! I still have 6 cooking devices out back, enough to make the wife bitch!😂 My nephew is supposed to be picking up my BS when he ever gets around to it!!!

I had a similar one I rebuilt twice before junking it. Felt good about myself till I read Craig's post! Heck of an effort sir, very much in character for you. I'm impressed.

Primo oval XL ceramic. Awesome for smoking meats, not so awesome for pizza.
