    Since this smoker seems to be popular am looking to buy one IF I can put a full rack of ribs on it. Haven't gone to see one yet so would like to know before I get real worked up on getting one.
    Measured the ribs in the freezer and they were about 18". Will cut a little off the end but am tired of cutting them in half and still not fitting well on my little Brinkman.

    TIA

    Just measured mine. 191/2' plenty for a rack.

    The more I hear the more I want. Can just barely fit 2 racks on mine now.[​IMG]
    Kinda hard to feed more than 4 ppl.

    The way I eat, 2 racks would be hard to feed me and the wife.

    Back in my YOUNGER days I could eat a full rack. These days wife and I will cook one rack and have left overs. 1-2 ribs. When we have another couple over I cook 2 racks. Since that is all that will fit on my smoker we can't have more than that at a time.
    Gonna change that tho.[​IMG]

    I no I shouldn't eat that much but when I smoke I overeat, it is so darn good it's hard to stop.
