Ok so i need to cook two turkeys on the egg for thanksgiving. Ive done 1 turkey plenty of times but I dont know how having 2 birds in there are going to effect the cooktime. I have an XL egg and have two 18 pound birds. Has anyone done this and have an idea of cooktime? please let me know.


  • Generally two pieces of meat will cook in the same time as one or just a little longer.

  • Curious....what is your setup with two 18-lb birds in a single egg?
  • setup will just be plate setter legs up with a drip pan on it and then the 2 turkeys sitting side by side. I have an XL so i dont think space will be an issue. Will do a mock setup once the turkeys are fairly thawed just to make sure.
