Baking bread on charcoal grill

Has anyone baked bread on a charcoal grill or smoker anything other than a dutch oven. I would like to try this just wondering if others have and what the results were.

I have a Big Green Egg smoker/grill. I have read that people bake breads on it. In fact, I believe I even saw some threads on this great site.  I have tried to bake bread on mine, but had technical difficulties.  I firmly believe it would make great bread.  If your not familar with the Big Green Egg, it is a ceramic smoker, and I have read that it acts like a giant cloche. 

I bake pizza's on it all the time and they come out great.....

Good luck, and please post some pics of your results.
