Question about using rib racks

Discussion in 'Pork' started by shaun h, Jul 1, 2011.

  1. When using rib racks, how often should I rotate around the ribs?  Maybe every 45 minutes or so?  Or is that too much?  I
  2. ive only used mine once so far but i didnt rotate them at all and they cooked great. they could have gotten rotated out when i took them out to foil them, and then again when i removed the foil, though.

    If your smoker is configured right, there is no need for rotation.

    Good luck and good smoking.
  4. Interesting.  I have a WSM 22 in.

    However, A couple of years ago I did a smoke on a grill where I set up an indirect zone.  I used the rack and I didn't think to rotate or flip them.  When I checked on them, the tops were WAY overcooked.  So it struck me that it was hotter.

    On the other hand, with the WSM, I am not sure if that would work out quite the same way?
  5. even on the Weber Kettle I don't rotate the rack at all...but then I use the minion method with the little side trays for the charcoal and place the ribs over the AMNS with the drip shield.

    You don't need to rotate them.
