    I can say that a 6.5 qt oval Le Creuset fits, but just barely.

    Any 5 or 6 qt round should fit. I don't think you can get a 7qt on there unless you find one with handles (or cut them off).

    some of the lodges have a 12" diameter.
    i dont know if they would fit on the 15 grate or if handles extend beyond that measurement. and then there is the height issue....
    thats why i was asking

    Hey jonboy,this Lodge 5qt fits the medium just fine.It measures out to 13" from handle to handle.


    Here it is on my medium(platesetter,legs-up then cooking grid) :)

    Now thats what I'm thinking about.
    A nice pot of chili out on the egg.
    I made some grilled chicken tonight.
    It might make it into a dutch oven if i can pick one up tomorrow.
