Can you remove the fire ring and use a place setter legs down to create more space to smoke a bigger turkey?

    If you're turkey is really that big, it seems like you would run out of lump using the setup you've described.

    That said, I have cooked a 23# bird on my large using a "typical" setup -- platesetter legs up, roasting pan with v-rack.

    Yes! Be careful when closing the lid. I remove the thermometer until the lid is down so as not to bend the tip and break it. Yes I broke one years ago and $23 later cooked.
    This might help.
