Answer is simple - either "nothing" or "two mad max turkeys"
Which causes my problem. Every year we host my wife's family - I know I should get husband of the year! Last year we cooked for about 25 people. I did a 22 lb. Mad Max Turkey and also smoked up a ham:
Thanksgiving 08 - Turkey on the Large and Ham on the Small:
It was great - but basically everyone wanted the turkey instead of the ham - NO SUPRISE.
So since 08 Thanksgiving, I have added an XL to my family. On the BGE website - it claimed two 20lb Turkeys. So - I buy a 14.5 lber and a 16 lber. However, I tested the set up and am worried that I am not going to repeat last year's success. I have the new model XL, so the plate setter is pretty short. I don't see anyway to get two roasting pans in there without serious overhang the plate setter. My best bet right now is that I have the drip pan that goes with the adjustable rig that will sit on BGE feet on the plate setter.
Any help is MUCH appreciated. Also, I assume the 12 - 15 minutes per pound is not TOTAL of the turkey, but individual.
I have been BGEing for 18 months, but sometimes I feel like such a novice!
Thanks in advance.
