After reading about burnt seals due to the pizza stone I bought some iron fittings at lowes. They are 3" tall and have a 2" foot print for stability. $9 total. There are no issues with the lid closing.. Im hoping with a higher stone, the top of the pizza will cook at the same time as the bottom.

    Do you have the platesetter in place?

    Lid will close, but is there at least 1" between stone and dome? 
    Read on here somewhere that you need at least 1" for proper air flow or the stone will get too hot on the edges. (no idea if that's true - I just remember reading it as a guideline)

  • Between the dome and the pizza stone there approximately 2 1/2 to 3 inches all the way around. I tried to take some pictures through the vent on top but it did not turn out well.
