    I am smoking two racks of pork ribs tomorrow. One is 7 pounds and one is 6 pounds. Do I combine the weight and smoke at that time or do I smoke them at their individual weight?

    Use the 3-2-1 method and they will be done

    Treat each as if it's on the pit by itself. Don't worry about time, cook to IT. You probably will experience a longer cook because of the added mass in the smoker.

    How long should I wait before adding the mop sauce?

    If you start by using the 3-2-1 method, you sauce in the last hour unwrapped.

    See post #2 in this thread:

    The number of racks of ribs in your smoker will not affect cook time provided your pit is kept at a consistent temp. At most you might use a little additional fuel maintaining that temp. You will not even notice it as a factor.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Yea what Merv said.

    3-2-1 is pretty foolproof.

    After a couple of times you may want to try it my way.

    Click on "Perfect ribs every time" in my signature.

    Good luck,
