Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

LBGE Butt Capacity

Hey all,

I'm cooking for approximately 30 on Saturday with a mix of kids and adults.  I was thinking of getting approximately 12 - 13 pounds of raw, bone-in pork butt.  However, it doesn't appear that my butcher (for those of you in AZ, Hobe Meats) has anything over 10lbs.  So my thought is, I will get 2 x 6 - 7 pound butts.  I have only ever cooked a single piece of meat (other than ribs etc), so was curious how much can be cooked simultaneously on a standard large egg?  Will two 7 pound butts fit comfortably?
