How much butt on an XL?

I haven't take a good look at this yet .. I'm hoping I can fit four 10lb butts on my XL .. I don't think it should be a problem but i'm interested in hearing from anyone who's tried it.

    I've fit two 10 and two 8 pounders on my large on one level. You should be fine with an xl.

    I have cooked seven Sam's Club butts on a large, and Sam's Club butts average eight pounds each.  So four on an extra large will fit all on the same level.

    Sounds like I might get one more in there.  I'm always concerned about spacing for even cooking and airflow.

    I have put two 9 lbs'ers + two 7 lbs'ers in the Large.  It was a tight squeeze, difficult to close the lid.

    I can put four 10lbs'ers on the XL no problem......I've done two 20 lbs turkey's next to each other twice now.  Plenty of room!

    Tyenic, Did all those fit from the get go?  Or only after shrinkage?  BTW, great photo!!!

    They all fit from the get go. Obviously I wouldnt call it a great idea to squeeze 6 pork butts on the egg all at once, but I had 24 hours notice to feed everyone at my wife's class reunion because the caterer had a major emergency. They didn't turn out to bad.

  • I did seven 8 pounders on my XL... but had two up top on the AR. You just have to be sure you don't stab a butt with the dome thermo!!!!

    (had a hard time understanding wh the dome temp wasn't going anywhere until Iooked!)

    BOOMER!
