Chicken and Ribs

  1. I am going to cook chicken and ribs this weekend.  Should I put the chicken on the top rack and ribs under or vice versa.  Does it matter or is it a  personal preference thing?

    Some people would tell you to put the chicken on the bottom.  They think chicken fat dripping is poison.

    If you are smoking properly, all the fat will be at a safe temp.

    Having said that, I would still put the chicken on the bottom.  I think pork fat on chicken tastes better than chicken fat on pork.  LOLOL

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I always put poultry below any other type of meat.
