Anyone use or prefer ss rib racks?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I know some people use stainless steel rib racks that'll hold multiple slabs of ribs but if you're not short on cooking area, is there any point in using them? I figured you'd want the broad side of your ribs to lay horizontal rather than vertical. Anyone have some insight?

I have some rib racks but only use them if space is an issue. I prefer to have them laying down. If you wrap your ribs using 3-2-1 method you will have issues with them fitting in the racks when wrapped anyway. Just my .02 cents worth.

Thanks. I have a Masterbuilt Pro which has 4 shelves so I haven't had a big enough crowd over to need to create extra space.

I think I would cut the ribs in half to fit the grates before I would smoke them in a rib rack.

While we're on the subject of ribs..... what are your favorite sides? I already have baked beans and home made french fries on tonight's menu, but any other favorites??

Homemade slaw is hard to beat.

Rib racks work when space is limited in smoker


Prepped in lug, on a rack w/ Q matz woven on rack before smoker

Out of the smoker

Finished product and they were tasty baby backs!!
