Even cut in half, the racks take the same amount of time on my WSM(18.5).
With more racks of ribs, I use a vertical stand to make more room. I can do between 4-6 racks at once this way.
Congratz on her masters!!!
You can also cut the racks of ribs in half and stack them up to 4 high. This allows for a lot more ribs to be cooked in a small space. They teach this method at the Weber Academy.
Prepare your ribs as normal then cut the rack in half. place in stacks in the smoker up to 4 high. Every 20 minutes take the bottom one in the stacks and place it on the top. After they have all had a turn on the top, middle and bottom then coat in your sauce, wrap in foil and continue to cook until they have been in for 3 hours. Remove the foil and repeat the stack rotation one more time or until they are all tender.
I was not convinced when they first explained what we were going to do but the end results were very good.
