Newby Question: Can I get 6 racks of Loin Back Ribs on my XL

edited July 2012 in EggHead Forum
Title pretty much says it. I am having some people over for the 4th and would like to smoke 6 racks of Loinbacks. I have a XL Egg and was wandering if they would all fit.

Thanks for the help and Happy 4th!!

    Should not be a problem. Might have to put them vertical on the V-Rack.

    Flamethrower is that without any additional racks.

    If i can do 8 in my large you better be able to do 9 in a XL!!

    If you need to stand them, and don't want them touching, use skewers, or toothpicks to hold them apart. 
    FWIW, they might fail toward the end of the cook.

    All to get cheaper brisket!

    I do 6 on my L all the time on a single grill.  I just put them in a vertical rack and I have to manuever the ends a bit to get it closed the first time.  In an XL, as noted above, you'll have no problem at all.
