    I wanna smoke baby backs for my super bowl party. I want to smoke 4 or 5 racks on my weber 22.5 kettle. What's the best way to do this? Rib rack or stack and swap?

    A rib rack is your best bet. If you have a turkey roaster there might be one in there. You just flip it over and it's a rib rack. I have done this many times and the ribs turn out great circled up like they are up there.

  4. A rib rack will hold the most. Remember you want indirect heat.

    Happy smoken.

    That is ingenious.

    Thanks, David. That's why I'm concerned because I'm essentially confined to half my grill space.

    These baskets save a ton of space over doing it without. I love them yes I do. Weber makes them and they are cheap too.

    Use some fire brick and partition off maybe a third of the space for your coals...Use a rib rack so the heat runs through the rib long ways.
