I did roast spuds in mine yesterday with the chicken. Took a while as I did not pre cook but were ok. Bit more like jackets though. i stuck them on the roasting rack.

I have the rfy pan...not used it yet, that's tomorrows dinner. But the lid does go over the top of it.

Yes the lids fits all the official Cobb extras.

We cheated as we are too mean to pay the price Cobb want for the bits, we got the initial Cobb with bag, grill, roasting rack, lighter and recipe book.

For the frypan we use a cheap ASDA smart price one which I have removed the handle from, I then found I needed to squeeze it into a slight oval shape so that it didn't starve the Cobb's fire from oxygen, as it was a perfect fit into the top of the Cobb, the dome lids fits and it works a treat, cost 2.99

For a griddle I found a small cast iron sizzler griddle in a charity shop for 3 (which included some jars of spice and a wooden stand for the griddle, which sits on top of the fire Basket, again you can put the dome on.

Other accessories we have improvised are a small trangie mess tin again from a charity shop, you can keep food warm in it as it will sit on top of the dome, cheap wire cooling rack to sit the dome on when adding/turning food so as not to burn the grass, various cheap/found implements that get packed away with the Cobb so I have always got everthing to hand.

The double skillett ladies gave me a tip of putting a scruched up bit of kitchen paper in with chicken legs or anything that might have a lot of water in it to help crisping... Have not tried it yet to see if it works... but as they sell them....would be worth a whirl.
