I thought I'd read that charcoal pits can be up to 11x11.

This common advice is overly simplistic.  The requirement is that all the piles to be charcoal-ified must be touching each other, and they must be within 5 blocks of the firepit used to ignite the pile.  This is how 11x11x11 is arrived at.  It's not actually the overall dimensions that matter, but the distance from the firepit used to ignite the pile.

I know this is on the wiki, but isnt 5 blocks from the firepit, in all directions, 11x11x5? Assuming the fire pit is always above the center of the top-most layer

5 block above and below.  All directions = 11x11x11.  The vertical part is the tricky part, being able to have a pit, light it, get out and plug all the holes in time.  It's indeed much easier to do 11x11x5.
