    Celtic Wolf,[p]Yup I agree with L....Most I have been able to fit and have adequate circulation is 5. This is with no stacking which I am not big on.

    <p />Lebraps,
    This is more than 30# I honestly think I could have gotten 3 if not 4 more on there without stacking...[p]Wess

    WessB,[p]4 MORE for a total of 8? That's a lot of butt under one XL dome. Much like L I started with 6 ...might have even been 7... on the XL and grew concerned that the end result would be more of a steamed product and thus no bark. I wound up cranking up another cooker and dividing the bounty. Glad I did.[p]Again this begs the question.....where's the JUMBO BGE?[p]
