    Default Rib Rack

    Not sure where to put this so it goes in the VDS section.

    How many use a rib rack? I can only get 3 racks of ribs on my smoker and I feel I can do more with a couple of racks...BTW I use a single grate UDS and usually do a 3-2-1 method..

    Thanks

    Funny, I have 1 and never used it.
    I can squeeze 4 BB or 3 spares on mine and haven't needed more.
    Im sure some wealth of information guru will come along and offer advice.
    Why in the hell should I have to "Press 1 for English?"

    Some say the using foil can lead to memory loss but I don't believe it I would add another rack to the drum. It is hard to use you hat to cook your ribs if they are standing up.

    I've used a rack but I'm not to keen on them. You will need to flip the ribs to cook evenly. I would lean towards adding a second grate.

    My thinking exactly, thanks for the replies. I'm using a flat lid so I should be able to squeeze in another rack/grate.

    Thanks

    I tried a rack in my offset but was disappointed by the unevenness of the cook. I've never used a UDS but I presume the results are similar.

    The only rib rack I ever used was one that held the slabs at an angle rather than straight up. Seemed like a good idea at the time. But...One slab leaned over another, and the other and the other. In other words, each slab was touching another, blocking heat and smoke. It resulted in uneven cooking. Even straigt up would require a lot of flipping/rearranging to get even doneness.

    Too much hassle. And if you're a 3-2-1 guy, practically impossible. Add a second grate to your UDS or build another for big rib cooks.

    And if you do a second grate, you'll probly want to rotate slabs bottom to top throughout the cook.

    I had another thought ( a rare occurrence) you could buy a package of cheap metal skewers and bend them into S hooks. Hook the ribs about 3 bones in and hang them from the grate. You can load probably 15 racks no problem. Believe it or not they cook even and don't burn.

    I have coiled up ribs before and wasnt thrilled with the results .. but it works. Just turn em over just like in a rack to cook both sides even.
