In MBN I'll never cook less than 12 racks of babybacks; usually 14 or 15 racks. In GBA, I'll cook 6...
I think you missed the point.
If you are cooking them because you need them, then you need them. If you cooking them because you hope out of 6, 1 comes out right, then you should just spend your time practicing.
