Needing to cook four eight pounders on the large - any suggestion for fitting them all on at one time? Normally cook two using the V rack with platesetter and drip pan method.

  • Do you have an extra cooking grid?  If I'd put two on the bottom, rest a cooking grid on top of them and put the other two (smaller two) on that grid. Maybe a 3 down 1 up would work as well.

    Isn't it hotter up in the dome, so wouldn't you put larger on top?

  • Not if you are building a pyramid type pile.

    Question, if cooking 2 butts side by side, doesn't the outside meat cook faster therefore creating a need to rotate the meat?
