I just bought a Bradley Original and for my first real smoke I am going to smoke a 5lb butt roast and a couple racks of ribs for some friends. First question, I have seen a couple recipes for each and decided how I would like to cook them, but how much do I need to adjust the cooking times and temp for that much meat going at once or is there not much adjustments needed. On the ribs I was going to do smoke them using the 2-2-1 method (two hours on the rack, two hours in foil, and out of the foil to crisp them up for an hour or whatever the preference is) with a dry rub. I was going to do the same rub on the roast as well.
Can a Bradley original cook that much meat at a time? Will I need to cook it 2-3 hours longer on the butt roast to compensate for the other meat being in there?
I will also accept any suggestions on a good side recipe as well. Going big on the first smoke and hoping I don't have to call for pizza;)
