I want to cook two whole chickens. My problem is my cooking grates on my vertical cooker are only 15 1/2 in diameter. I know not to put chicken on top of other foods. My question is can I put one chicken above another on the lower grate? Or, do I need to fire up the offset?
The vertical is much easier to get to 300-325, where I like to cook chicken.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

I would stack them that will make some juicy chicken ! On the other hand I am a firm believer of cutting the birds in half!

I stack them on my UDS often. I put one on my turkey fryer platform-stem, then a couple spuds for spacers, then the next bird. Good luck with your cook...

Chicken over chicken is not a problem if you start them at the same time, if you are starting one and leaving the second a couple of hours, you are risking things more, but if you are starting them within 5 or 10 minutes, everything should be fine.

What you are trying to prevent is putting raw uncooked chicken over the top of something that is nearly cooked and is ready to come out.
