Roasting 2 Turkeys on the XL Egg

Canadian Thanksgiving is next weekend (Monday, October 8) and I need to roast two 15 pounders on the XL egg.  I paid extra for the larger grill, but was surprised how tight a fit it was last year for one 16 pounder when closing the lid. I had it standing up on a vertical roaster with a drip pan underneath on the grill. 

Question - Am I going to be able to fit two 15pound turkeys on vertical roasters on the grill or am I going to need to remove the grill and place them on the plate-setter to add extra depth - and is it safe to rest both turkey's on the plate setter, that a total of 30lbs Canadian (no metric conversion needed, LOL).
