It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

So what is the maximum number of racks of babies on a large and what are the best eggcessories to make it happen (extra level and grids and what not). Planning a party and the number of invites depends on teh number of racks!

thanks all!

    The above is one awesome cook! I use the Adjustable rig from as do many others. I have the oval grid setup with stone and slide guide.
    I can do four full racks without them ever touching or me having to do anything after putting them on aside from the occasioal spritz. I can do six if I want to crowd them a little, which means shifting them around some during the cook, no big deal, but it extends the cook time. I just purchased a third slider/grid setup from CGS which should allow for six easily, possibly nine, but it does require a little more work. Haven't tried it yet, so I can't say. :) :)

    You should be able to do at least 6 without touching. Do you have that extra little topper thingy dingy that will hold another grid?

    To be more specific...I want to avoid the meat touching and was trying to find a way to do multiple levels maybe up to 3? I have the platesetter so could I buy smaller grates and put legs on them the diy way and stack them all the way up in the dome? Is there a rig that does 3 levels or even more?

    Thanks all!
