Ive always had trouble with crowding that much meat. Pork shoulder is pretty forgiving though. Also, there are likely to be pretty significant temp differences. Curious how the top 4 do over the bottom 4. Keep us posted and put up pics!
Yep! That was one reason I went with an Ironwood was the drip tray is pretty small for a grill of that capacity. It could be a fire hazard for forgetful folks. Out of sight, out of mind. Glad you caught it before you started.
