    My last attempt at ribs went ok but I had some temp issues. Today we got some great news and everyone in the family said they wanted ribs. So I ran home grabbed 3 racks of spares at the local market and just crammed them all into my 18.5 WSM. No time for Q-view yet but I will show the end result for sure. There's about a 25-30 degree temp difference with top and bottom rack ok my WSM that I just discovered but I put the thin parts of the rack on bottom so should work out. The reason I am posting is I was wondering if anybody has any good ideas for putting more ribs in my WSM? It is slam packed with 3 racks of spares. The rib rack I am using really didn't help out as much as I was hoping.
  2. It's just hard to get a lot of ribs in a small space, "sometimes a big space"

    Be looking forward to pics

    I think your right. It's kind of awkward to fit something like that in a round smoker.

    I've seen,not tried, others roll the racks and pick them together.

    I think I may have seen that too. I kind of tried that today but it didn't look like it would stay together right. I didnt try for very long tho. May work

    To roll them they have to be tied like a crown roast, butches string will work for you. Do your small roll first, and keep rolling a little bigger, so you can put one over the other without touching. Hope this helps, and that you understand what I am saying.

    That makes perfect sense. Next time I will give that a shot. Almost done with the 2 hour foil stage. Can't wait to eat

    your other 2 options would be... hang them from S hooks... or get the 22.5 WSM
