    I'm doing a cook out next weekend for a large party. My neighbor said I can borrow his Charbroil Silver Smoker for the party. I was hoping to do 6 beer can chickens in there, but I don't know if they will even fit. I went over to look at his grill on Sunday and it doesn't seem to have the height. Anyone know how many I can fit in there and does anyone have any qview of some chickens in a silver smoker?

    I dont have a silver but mine is similar in size and I would say 4 tops because of the height issue. If they are less than 4 pounds maybe 1 or 2 more max.My bigger chickens almost touch the lid when closed, but my stand is a half inch tall at the base also.

    I have a Silver Smoker and I don't think you can get a vertical chicken in there. How about some Cornish Hens on some small pineapple cans. You could probably fit about 8 or 10 of those in there. Take pics of the flock when cooking.

    Yeah, that's what I figured. I haven't had a chance to go take a look at it again. I'm just going to do them on my BBQ Grillware and my neighbor's Aussie. I'm going to do 6 slabs of spare ribs on the silver smoker and a pork butt in my ECB. Burgers and brats will be done on my char-broil kettle! I need to get going on my bbq island. I bet I could fit 6 in my Grand Turbo! I'll take some Q-view of all the grills going at once! [​IMG]
