First spare ribs question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

 When I place my ribs on bottom rack would it be bad if i place them in a cookie sheet? I have 3 racks and 3 "shelves" the reason i want to place lowest one on a cookie sheet is to protect my heat source an older hotplate/double burner. T-minus 2 hours until I throw them in, and I am getting excited.

That would most likely cause some temperature fluctuations within the smoker and make the bottom rack cook faster as the cookie sheet would absorb a lot of heat. If you want to put a sheet or pan under your food I would suggest putting it on a rack by itself then putting the food above it.

Thank you for the speedy reply. They are in with no drip pan, let the juices fall where they may. Pictures to follow.

I use foil to cover any areas that may get dripped on.That way I'm not really changing the heating or air flow while still making it easy to clean up.
