Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

How big of a Turkey in a large

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
Help, all I can find listed is 15+ plus, WHAT? We want to do the largest I can fit in and have no idea. Thanks, Julie


  • Juliem4444,
    I think the biggest you can do is 20 lbs, but you have to make sure that the Dome temp probe doesn't touch the turkey.[p]Have fun!

    Juliem4444,[p]I egged a 23 pounder last Christmas. It was a very snug fit.
  • Juliem4444,[p]Starting to be turkey season. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!![p][p] Turkey, Whole, BGE Size

    1 The Small EGG will hold a 12 lb turkey.
    2 The Medium EGG will hold a 18 lb turkey.
    3 The Large BGE will hold a 20 lb turkey.
    4 The XL BGE will hold 2 - 20 lb turkeys.

    Juliem4444,[p]As 'ab ovo' states, 22 - 23 pounder will fit the large.[p]Enjoy your cook and meal,

  • Juliem4444,
    Thanks to you all :) Julie

  • Juliem4444,
    i've done a 24 pounder. .. trick is to try out your set-up and make sure it works before you fire up the egg. .. .this may sound silly, but use a basketball, and see if everything fits properly. .. [p]DSCN0627.jpg
