How many pork butts?

How many 8 to 9 pound butts can one cook on the grid of the XL?[p]Thanks, Lebraps


  • Lebraps,[p] I had six on mine at one time, but removed one just because.

    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]

  • BYC,[p] It was me that had 6 on my XL :)[p] JUMBO The XL weighs 200 pounds. How much would a Jumbo weigh?
