People of the Ring I am smoking 27 racks of ribs this weekend and was wondering if anyone has used the rib racks that hold a few ribs upright. I am tight for space and was wondering if i will get the same smoke coverage as lying them flat. Question

I have used them in my Lang when I had to do more ribs then space and they work great. I've never had a problem with them............. you may have to switch them up some but they work...............

You should have no problem at all. I use them once a year and as long as you get air flow between you will be alright. You may want to plan on a little longer cooking time because of the volume of ribs.

I use skewers for doing a ton of ribs. Just insert them through each rack and they will sit up on the grates just fine. Be sure to leave about a half in between each rack if you plan on doing this so they are not touching each other. works well, and dirt cheap as we use bamboo skewers.

Thats a good idea too.

I used to use them when I had a smaller pit and not enough room to lay them flat, and they worked just fine for me. I never noticed a difference in quality or smoke penetration when using them.
