Having a party soon does anyone know how many racks of ribs I can cook on the XL Egg? Also can they be stacked and rotated every 30 to 40 minutes?

    If someone can get 20 slabs of St. Louis style spare ribs on a large, I'm thinking you could easily do that many on an XL...

    Note that while the photo says "rack", those are uncut full runs of ribs, making them slabs.

    You can rotate them throughout the cook, to account for temperature variations across the lump bed.

    I could easily get 6, check my video/post on my ribs and look at the room left on the grill, mind you I was not trying to squeeze them in, easy 6.
