    Looks good.  With that much pork and a shallow drip pan, be sure and keep an eye on it so you don't end up with a mess or grease fire with a ruined cook.

    Let us know how it turns out, BTW how many pounds is that.I am scheduling about a 16 pound cook in about 2 weeks. Are you using just the one temp probe, whats the plan to tell when every bodies done??
  • JebpotJebpot Posts: 347
    About 32 lbs. Yes on the one probe. When they are close ( I know don't open egg) I will check with therapen and arrange if needed. checked earlier they were within 5 degrees of each other. But they smell good.

    I have done four on a large many times.  You will be surprised at how even they cook.  I've also done five 7 pounders on my large at one time with the extender.  I turned the three on the bottom on their side and the two on the top were flat.  I used double foil to cover the exposed parts of the grate that was not blocked by the platesetter.  It was tight to start and the top rack did touch the lower butts, but after about eight hours of cooking everything pulled down and separated.  Good bark on all of the butts.  Don't underestimate what you can cook on a large.

    They look awesome. XL's are for real. I've done three briskets. Looks like a 4 butt-er is in my future.
