    Is that measure @ bottom or top?

    Carter, if you have a Large BGE, you can use a 12" Lodge.

    I do have a large but unsure of how to measure my skillet.  At the top or bottom?

    Measure from the edge of the skillet to the end of the handle, if under 18" you are OK, if over by much, get out the saw and safety glasses.

    What @Skiddymarker says would be to see if it would fit in the Egg with the dome shut. For the CI Pizzas go with 10.5" diameter at the top. At least I'm 90% sure its at the top. Brain can't seem to 'member today. Will check tonight.

    The 12" Lodge skillet fits in the large, but it's pretty tight.

    Also, in the likely event that you'll be using Zippylip's dough recipe (which I do) keep in mind that a lot of the posts on here have it portioned for the 10.5" skillet.   I ended up underestimating my dough portion and had to work it towards the edges by hand.  It was still good, but leaving it alone yields the best results.

    Mine is 10.5 at the top.  In process of making some Zippylip's dough right now.

    Mine is a #10 Lodge. I believe it's 10 inches. It has a big 10 on the bottom of the pan.
