Isn't the top of the riser made of steel, and the pizza stone is sitting on top of that?

The top of the riser (snorkel) is a gas bottle(or canister) lined with superwool. The refractory slab sits on that and on a ledge i've welded at the door frame. And is free between the tangent an,d the bell's walls.
I would have loved to have the riser to the right, and as tall as it was before.
But i didn't think at all about making a oven this way, till 3 or 4 years after the build.
I might cut a strip of gas bottle, to tack opposite of the snorkel, to force the gases up a bit more.
