  • Half the height thanks
  • Half the height thanks
  • BGE does not make that item.  Tell us why you need it and maybe there are other options for your needs.  Are you trying to fit a large bird in the Egg?

  • Yes last year with the ring, and place setter it barely shut
  • To maximize your height inside you will need to place platesetter feet up and place your turkey in a drip pan on your platesetter.  I would place tin foil rolled into 3/4" balls under drip pan to get air under it to salvage your dripping if you want to make gravy.  Place the bird horizontal (breast up) on a v-rack or place celery stalks in the drip pan and place the bird on them.  You can always pull out the thermometer and watch the temps with a Thermapen if you have one.

     

    How big a bird are you trying to do?
