I was asked to cater a 30th birthday party on the 4th. On the menu was brisket, 2 pork butts, 6 racks of ribs & bacon wrapped jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese & pineapples.

When cooking on a WSM, how do you guys sauce or flip the bottom rack? what do you do with the top one, and what kind of mess does it make and how long to get back up to temp while taking the smoker apart? I am thinking about getting one....


nice job!!!!!

nice job!!!!!

I'm a "Foiler" so what I do is sauce the ribs after they have been in the foil for about 30-45min. I then remove the lid and top grate, place 3 racks on the bottom, 3 racks on top and put it back together. Takes about 5-10 min to get back up to temp, not too long at all.
