What size Cast Iron Dutch Oven for Large Egg?

Hi Everyone!
I'm looking to do Over The Top Chili about 16 times for football season this year (possible exaggeration). The question that I have is how big of a dutch oven can I buy, dimension-wise; before the lid won't close? As I understand it, the chili goes in the dutch oven, and the grate sits on top of the cast iron directly with a meat ball.
So, when the grate is raised up, how high can it go before I have issues closing the lid? Hopefully what I'm asking makes sense. Thanks everyone! Skol Vikings! #EggOn!
