    Has anybody stacked spareribs on top of each other when smoking?

    Negative. I always lay my ribs horizontally on the grate, bone side down. Learned long ago that as the fat renders, it flows into the meat to keep it tender.

    I don't even use a rib rack, for the above reason - can't get the fat on top.

    Don't stack them as the ones in the middle will NOT get any Smoke...

    Get a rib rack from Lowe's or Home Depot or Walmart or even online

    This place is a good place to buy, I have purchased from them and they have good customer service...

    Agree with both, but I prefer the bone down over using the racks. To me the bone helps hold the juices.

    Please make sure you take the pictures and let us all see it and enjoy it too.
