    Cooking turkey is one situation I really wish I had an XL.   I would keep it under 14 pounds but am interested to hear what others say...

    I have done a 15#spatchcock turkey on a LBGE without having to get creative.  I know others have done bigger but don't recall the largest size posted. I'm sure with draping over an upside down roasting rack you could get a couple more #'s in there.  FWIW-

    I will be doing a 22 lb turkey, but, will do it as 2 halves.  No longer "spatch cock".  Two racks on my rig, indirect, and rotate racks.  We will see.  ar-cee
