- good temp for both at the same time?
- time per piece - brisket time at that weight and what temp pretty much determines the ribs going I assume
- 3-2-1, 2-2-1, no foil for the ribs?
- brisket on top ribs on bottom, vice versa?
- any thing I might be missing?
Any guidance is greatly appreciated!!!
Awesome site and better ppl.. Love it.
You can do them both at the same time , the Brisket will be a lot longer than the BBs , but it'll work fine...
The Brisket "rule of thumb time is 1.5hrs/lb. raw" ( remember that's JUST an estimate) ,the Ribs will be appox. 5hrs.
1. I suggest an temp. of 225*F ,leave the door closed , no peeking until the Ribs need checking at 4hrs. or so . . .toothpick test for tenderness
2. I don't foil and waste time looking , opening , closing . . . a plus here is great bark
3. I'd go Brisky on top , let the Ribs get all that juice on them
4. As I have said , leave the door closed (MHO) and let the Smoker do it's work. Check the Ribs at hr. 4 or so and remove when done . Leave the Brisket in and watch the IT and pull at around 200*F,
or toothpick tender
OK , Saltydog... shoot us back some Q-view when done and have fun . . .
