This is the same as I did on my 18" Kettle
16" Pizza pan fits almost perfect, 2 dollar store tin pans a few pop rivets does it. I use 2 pieces of foil to seal the edge gap

Here you can see the edge gap

Loaded with char coal and I put a fire starter cube on the left side

The bottom sweeper vents are different on this premier then my other kettle
That will be something for me to play with.

Had a chance to play with the sweeper, it worked and if I have to redo it it is simple
Cleaned the grill out used Awesome from the dollar store

I like it! If you flipped the pan over and notched the ends of the upright it would catch drippings as well....
Dam what an idea, Richie!

Kind of similar to a SnS Richie, should work great, Like! I'm not thrilled with the new vent design either, takes some adjustment and getting used to, but it does work. That top edge looks like it could be kind of sharp, did you file did down some. RAY

Dan That may make it a fire pit collecting fat. There is more then enough room for a deeper pan. Thanks for the Like I appreciate it

Ray if I added water to my drip pan it would probably be almost the same as the SS, the edge is sharp I always wear gloves when handling it. I keep it out of reach when not in use. Thanks for the Like I appreciate it

Richie , you can buy a 16 ga steel trim to finish off the sharp edge . We used to use expanded mesh in security walls . They always sent the trims with the sheets . Just slides over the cut edges .
Check Lowe's or Home Depot if you're interested .
