Default Will a 22 lb. turkey fit in my 22.5 Weber OTG?

My alternative to asking this question is to buy the turkey, then perhaps find it won't fit. So, any advice is appreciated. If it won't fit, what is the largest size that will? Thanks.

In my 22.5 Performer, a 12-14 pound bird is a tight squeeze. The Lid always comes close to hitting the turkey. This is without using a turkey cannon or something similar.

I did one that big on my OTG but on the rotisserie, I was worried that it might not have cleared the lid but it worked out fine.

If you have the Rotisserie ring for the kettle you could probably swing it.
