    Family from Denver, Atlanta and San Diego came over for some BBQ today.  Picked up 6 racks of baby backs from Costco and smoked for about 4 and a half hours at 220 - 235 with mesquite. 

    Rubbed and ready for the WSM.

    Loaded the top and bottom racks.

    gotta love the fact that you can lay 6 racks nicely on the WSM!! looks great hope the family enjoyed! 

    how much were the ribs at costco, i haven't been to mine in awhile, just wondering if there was a sale going on?

    Thanks Everyone!

    I do love the fact that I can fit 6 racks.  Before I got the WSM22 i could only do 3 racks.  Now I can cook lots and freeze some for later.  It's getting that nice coating on the inside making it easier to maintain and control temp. Made my first lid-ring on the table next to WSM - oops!  A few more runs and I will be ready for an all nighter.  I'll do a butt or brisket.

    I paid $30 for 3 racks.  Not sure of the price-per-pound.

    I found that the amount of rub I would use on 3 racks covered 6 nicely with the same flavor and color.  I put all the spices together to have it on hand and mix in the sugar when I am ready to put it on the ribs.  I also cook them straight thru.  No spritzing or foiling.  They still come out tender and juicy. 

    Also, Gotta love Cooper!  We rescued him from a life of solitude and neglect and he has done incredibly well adjusting the huge crowd of my family.

    As fare as the left overs - I hid some some for later.  Shhh - don't tell anyone.
