Anyone use or prefer ss rib racks?

  1. I know some people use stainless steel rib racks that'll hold multiple slabs of ribs but if you're not short on cooking area, is there any point in using them? I figured you'd want the broad side of your ribs to lay horizontal rather than vertical. Anyone have some insight?
     
  2. I have some rib racks but only use them if space is an issue. I prefer to have them laying down. If you wrap your ribs using 3-2-1 method you will have issues with them fitting in the racks when wrapped anyway. Just my .02 cents worth.
     
  3. Thanks. I have a Masterbuilt Pro which has 4 shelves so I haven't had a big enough crowd over to need to create extra space.

    I think I would cut the ribs in half to fit the grates before I would smoke them in a rib rack.
     
  5. While we're on the subject of ribs..... what are your favorite sides? I already have baked beans and home made french fries on tonight's menu, but any other favorites??

    Rib racks work when space is limited in smoker
    Prepped in lug, on a rack w/ Q matz woven on rack before smoker
