    Any size you want!  It will handle a 10-12 pounder easily.

    I had a odd sized 10 pounder on it a couple weeks ago, Raised Grid with a drip pan using a Woo. Just had to pull the dome thermometer out a little bit. 
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season.

    yeah I've fit 2 8 pounders recently, sort of tight but can stand them up at the beginning if needed
