Max number of ribs on XLBGE.

My brother is thinking about getting an Egg, but wants to know if he should get a L or XL. I have seen posters with 12 racks in a LBGE like mine, but have no idea how many can fit on a XL.
Any advise on how many can fit on a XL would be appreciated.

    Everybody knows there’s three acceptable condiments for a hot dog; there’s mustard, onions and stagnant cart water! That’s IT!   ... Jon Stewart

  • Wow - ok I think 20 on a LBGE is a bit much. Taste and texture must be impacted when that many are done.
    Sending links to my brother. Thanks much!

    LOL, I think so too. But it is impressive though, eh?  :D

  • Yes it is. I am tempted to experiment with my LBGE and see how it turns out :)

    Wow! And I thought I was brilliant for figuring out how to get 6 racks in a large egg.

    Newbie here, but if he has to ask he should probable get a XL, I can put 6 racks of BB on my XL meat side up laying flat and cook some very good ribs. The 20 on the large in all honesty  didn't look like the best ribs/cook I have seen on this forum. Hey I like to eat and I bet I would have enjoyed those.

    I am a newbie here, so will defer to experience until I can try it myself :)
