side by side baby backs and spares
I've done baby backs on my old brinkman bullet smoker but didn't have room for more than three racks. Things have changed, now I have room so i'm doing three racks of bb's and three spares. I was going to do a 2 1/2-1 1/2-1 my question is will they both cook in the same time frame?

The spares will take longer than baby backs. Your probably looking more at a 3-2-1 for full spares depending on temp.

Probably not. I cook spares 3-2-1 but BBs at 2-1.5-1.

I don't foil and when I do them together I put the BB's in the cooler part of the smoker so both spares and BB's get done at about the same time.

Have you done a comparison taste test? Which do you prefer?

That's what this is they are in the fridge with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne. I am putting my go to store bought sauce Pats Ho-made on one of each, my homemade sauce on one of each, and brown sugar, brown mustard before the cook on the other two.

For me, I might throw the spares on about an hour before the BB's (I don't foil). The BB's usually cook a bit more quickly in my experience.

Also, I never trim them so YMMV.

spares take about 4 hours for me, 3 hours for "loin backs". That's cooking at 300ish, no foiling, mopping, etc. Just straight up cook 'em till they are done.
