Turkey weight for Large BGE?

I've only done one turkey on the egg, and it's that time of year again. Anybody know the approximate upper-range weight turkey that will fit in a large BGE? Last year I cooked a 18# and it fit fine. Thanks.

    Tarheel Tom,
    last T-Day I egged a 24.5 pounder with no trouble - only caution is to be careful your domr thermometer doesn't impale the bird. Good luck!

    And oh yes...also a 17" BlackStone gas fired griddle!

    Tarheel Tom,[p]Thanks and good to see you posting, too. I was wondering where you got off to.
    Hope you're holding up your end and keeping folks out yer way straight about the virtues of Southern cooking![p]Pork and hickory smoke is the only way to achieve nirvanna.... ya know.[p]WD[p]

  • WooDoggies,[p]If I could get away with cooking a pork shoulder rather than a turkey on thanksgiving, I'd do it in a second! [p]
