I am relatively new to smoking and plan to cook 4 butts in my electric smoker this weekend. Until now I have only smoked up to 2 at a time. My smoker will hold 2 butts on a rack, so if I do 4 I will have one rack underneath the other. My question is there any thing I need to do differently given the upper butts will be dripping on the lower ones? I plan to use a dry rub. Thanks.

I do multiple stacked racks of butts regularly and don't do anything special. Since they're all the same meat I don't think there's any issue. I have rotated them from top to bottom just to make sure the cooking is even on all the butts.

nik.... I do 6 to 8 at a time a lot , and all I do is close the lid of the Smoker and leave it closed till it's time to pull ; around 200*f IMT. Turns out great for me...
left alone , they cook a bit quicker too...just sayin'........
Have fun and...
