I have only seen one XL BGE in person and have several questions regarding its geometry and its cooking abilities. It is certainly much "squatter" than the large egg and does not have the same air space between the cooking grid and the inside of the lid. The cooking grid is also much closer to the fire.[p]Has anyone had problems trying to cook a turkey in an XL? Can you cook in the vertical position? Does the closeness to the fire impact its ability to slow cook without burning? Can you place a drip pan on the plate setter - or is there not enough room?
