Racks of ribs on a large egg

Does anyone have a picture of setting up the large egg for a bunch of racks of ribs? I have to do a some for a Church Dinner and was looking for some ideas. At the present I have a regular grid and a raised one above it. I figure 6 racks of Baby Backs on the lower grid in a holder and 2 or 3 on the top grid or grill. Not quite enough for this group.

    I've stuffed in 10 full racks with a platesetter and a V rack in a large. 6 vertical in the V rack and a rack on each side. Close the lid slowly pushing the ribs inward as you do.

    There is a picture floating around somewhere of Chef Wil doing 20 some-odd racks of ribs. He did it by standing them on end.
  • I'm probably going to do 6 racks next weekend. I've never done more than 3 before.

    Should I try to avoid having any ribs sticking out beyond the edge of the platesetter and therefore exposed to direct heat? Or is that not really a problem?
