Medium BGE and V rack

Going to make a 12lb Turkey in a medium egg, by placing it on a V rack.  Would you recommend using a drip pan or foil on the inverter?  The V rack is almost a long as the ceramic inverter making it very difficult to get a rectangular pan in there.  The medium round disposable pans by the BGE are not big enough to place the V rack in them.

  • Proud medium owner here. Sorry haven’t done a turkey in one. Go with foil if the pan doesn’t fit. Should work fine.

    Ron, I know you only bake in your Medium Egg.
    But will a standard aluminum half steaming pan fit in the Medium to hold a v-rack?
    Figured you had a few of those foil pans at the house.

    I think a half size disposable steam table pan should work. I don't have a medium but just measured a pan and it is 15 1/4 inches diagonally. You can fold the corners down to make it a little smaller if needed.






    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I've done 14# birds in my medium BGE. IIRC, one was a bit over 14# (under 15#) using my woo ring, stone and stainless pan. I did one, before getting the woo ring, with the rectangle aluminum pans, but you have to make sure it is positioned exactly right so that you don't drip past it. Had flare-ups on one bird due to not positioning it right. Got the woo ring after that and haven't had an issue since. 

    I've smoked them both at around 350F and 225-250F with great results. I like how it comes out at the lower temperature better. Using a remote thermometer (connected to my phone) to let me know when it's time to pull it (165F in the thickest part of the breast). 

    Makes GREAT soup afterwards too.  :)
