So I was really wanting a pit barrel type smoker so I could do more baby back ribs then 3 racks. I found this rack which holds 6 vertical instead of my normal laying them flat and turning them over half way through. so now I have no need for the pit barrel that I was licking my chops for lol. For some reason I'm not able to post the pic.

I need to send in my membership $$$$ so I can post pics the easy way lol.


Here is the pic just renewed membership

 

 


No need for a pit barrel anymore. Sweet !!!

 

This pic was taken 3  1/2 hours into the smoke @ 250*. I threw on some sauce for the remaining 1/2 hour. 4 hours at 250 on this kamado always makes the perfect ribs.

I think that's the Weber one - which if so, I have it!

Yours looks like it might be a different version, maybe this one ...

Mine is a non-stick coated one. Also that is an interesting way to smoke them. What is used to keep the round shape ?

 

With that technique I might be able to fit 8 racks

In the center one you see a toothpick. However I'd prob use (or it is) a bamboo skewer.


You'll turn a three hand job into a one hand sausage cranking, one hand sausage guiding machine.

ok thanks the bamboo skewer sounds like a good plan. I'm going to try that next time I do baby backs.

Kind of hard to do the bend test on those.  :dance:

I think I bought mine at home depot and it holds 6 racks where the ones in this pic hold 5 racks.
