Cooking times per lb

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am smoking two racks of pork ribs tomorrow. One is 7 pounds and one is 6 pounds. Do I combine the weight and smoke at that time or do I smoke them at their individual weight?

Use the 3-2-1 method and they will be done

Treat each as if it's on the pit by itself. Don't worry about time, cook to IT. You probably will experience a longer cook because of the added mass in the smoker.

How long should I wait before adding the mop sauce?

If you start by using the 3-2-1 method, you sauce in the last hour unwrapped.


See post #2 in this thread:


The number of racks of ribs in your smoker will not affect cook time provided your pit is kept at a consistent temp. At most you might use a little additional fuel maintaining that temp. You will not even notice it as a factor.


Good luck and good smoking.

Yea what Merv said.


3-2-1 is pretty foolproof.


After a couple of times you may want to try it my way.

Good luck,
