How many chicken thighs can you place on a large big green egg?

    I think I do 15 at a time.

    If you have an adjustable rig (or some way to do multi layer cooking)probably 50-60 pretty easily... :)

    This is kinda like asking how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie-Pop. In practice I doubt anyone can give you an actual upper limit number.

    As many or as few as you'd like. You can even put a big ole pile of 'em on there and rotate occasionally to get them all done.

    75 thighs and 947 licks B)
  • best to have a deep enough drip pan and maybe go indirect too . that many thighs is going to produce a lot of chicken fat..
  • I did a pkg of Sam's thighs (about 15-17) on an ajustable rig direct at 350 Sunday. They dripped fat pretty good but didnt burn. After it got to smokin good (rolling out the gasket and top) I adjusted temp down and cooked for about an hour. They were good but I wont do that many next time without a drip pan.

    10 is no problem at all, and I think Walt's answer of 15 would be very manageable and wouldn't effect color or an even doneness.

    Happy Trails
