** Chop Top Kettle Lid **
« on: July 17, 2016, 11:02:08 AM »
I took a nod from @varekai and made a cutout on my double insulated lid.



Cut the opening just above the rim of the lid, it is very stable.





Cut the inner lid a bit oversized from the opening to scrounge a cover.



Added 3 ground magnets and a Performer charcoal bin lid handle.



Playing around with a charcoal crescent - we'll see how it goes?





Big Green Egg feet under the BGE stone.



More to come...bye for now!
I cook on: Backwoods Gater, Lang 36, Hunsaker Smokers, Pellet Pro 22" WSM, BGE's, WSM's, Cajun Bandits, PK Grills, Drum Smokers, Genesis Silver C, Weber Q's, Cookshack 008, Little Chief, La Caja China #2, Lodge Sportsman...oh yeah! Weber Kettles! Kamado restoration and pit modification hack!

 This looks great!  Can you tell us how it performs, do you get higher temps for pizza?  Or use less charcoal for low and slow?
