8 racks of bb's about 2 pounds each. Gave one to my dad, one to a friend and the rest are for the in-laws this week (we're meeting up with them). I came home at lunch and started the FEC and prepped the ribs, 6 with apple rub and 2 with Rendezvous. This is the first time I had a chance to use this particular rib rack which fits the slides in the smoker like a grate would. I'm very happy with it. Ran the smoker at 224 for 5 hours on the nose, opened once mid-way thru and decided to flip the rack around to even out for any hot spots. Burned only a few pellets. I had a bone from each rub and was pleased. I gotta say, I have stepped back and quit doing a lot of the things I was doing and I'm happy about it. I'm down to just rub and smoke, no spritz, no this, no that! I enjoy cooking more and it seems to be working for me and not the other way around.
