Baby Backs for a crowd on the WSM (QView)

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

Family from Denver, Atlanta and San Diego came over for some BBQ today.  Picked up 6 racks of baby backs from Costco and smoked for about 4 and a half hours at 220 - 235 with mesquite. 


Rubbed and ready for the WSM.



Loaded the top and bottom racks.



Ready to pull





Bucket o Ribs!!  The bones were just falling out . . .





Juicy, tender  ribs!!!



And here's the family.



What a great day!!  It's not often this much of my family is in the same place at the same time, and cuz I still have a rack and a half of ribs left for later!!

Looks like an awesome time with family and good food. The ribs look perfect and I love the last pic of the dog sacked out.

gotta love the fact that you can lay 6 racks nicely on the WSM!! looks great hope the family enjoyed! 


how much were the ribs at costco, i haven't been to mine in awhile, just wondering if there was a sale going on?

Thanks Everyone!


I do love the fact that I can fit 6 racks.  Before I got the WSM22 i could only do 3 racks.  Now I can cook lots and freeze some for later.  It's getting that nice coating on the inside making it easier to maintain and control temp. Made my first lid-ring on the table next to WSM - oops!  A few more runs and I will be ready for an all nighter.  I'll do a butt or brisket.


I paid $30 for 3 racks.  Not sure of the price-per-pound.


I found that the amount of rub I would use on 3 racks covered 6 nicely with the same flavor and color.  I put all the spices together to have it on hand and mix in the sugar when I am ready to put it on the ribs.  I also cook them straight thru.  No spritzing or foiling.  They still come out tender and juicy. 


Also, Gotta love Cooper!  We rescued him from a life of solitude and neglect and he has done incredibly well adjusting the huge crowd of my family.


As fare as the left overs - I hid some some for later.  Shhh - don't tell anyone.
