Using a rib rack

Discussion in 'Pork' started by markadams, May 3, 2015.

  1. I'm new at smoking meat but am loving learning about it.  I'm going to smoke BB ribs later this week for my 2nd attempt.  The first time I smoked the ribs for 5 hours at 235 degrees leaving bone side down the entire time. The ribs were awesome.

    My questions:  Does anything change if using a rib rack?  Do I need to do anything differently when using a rack?

    Thanks for responding.
  2. Depending on the smoker you may have to turn them once. Most of the time it is the same.

    Happy smoken.

    Ditto on turning once. They may also finish a little drier with the rack. If at all possible, I always try to cook mine flat on the grate. Good luck and good smoking. Joe
