Hey guys,
Has anyone ever put 11 whole chickens on the XL egg. I do whole chickens all the time, but I see where is says you can just stack 11 whole chickens in there. Do they cook even and flavor the same thruoughout all of them.
Just curious.

    I haven't done 11 yet.. I've only ever done 6 at one time...
    context is important :)

    I know Frank from Houma has stuffed a bunch of chickens in his egg. I can't find the post, but maybe he'll be a gentleman and show his pictures.

    If he doesn't respond, he may be in his private jet on his way to the Salado fest.

  • I have done six beer can style and it was kind of tight.

    I think if you pulled the firering, put 6 on a lower level and 5 on an upper level but certainly not beer can style. Maybe BGE was packing them in like sardines - I prefer air movement all around.
  • Did 9 Cornish game hens once. Tight.

    Thats a waste of budlight you should use old style for a cook like that it would be cheaper! Birds look great though.
