    Hi there,

    I'm sure the definitive answer is here somewhere but I have not yet come across it. But I'm wondering if lets say I have ribs on the WSM top shelf and chicken (or whatever) on the bottom shelf, does the overall cooking time increase?

  2. No. Unless you load it up you won't notice a difference (like 4 butts on top and 4 on bottom).

    However, I cook ribs and chicken at different temp. Chicken is 325-350*F while ribs are 250-275*F. Of course, that's just me.

    ...and there is a temp difference between top and bottom.

    I've never used the lower rack iny WSM, except to hold a drip pan...

    I'm interested in the answer as well!
