    I am relatively new to smoking and plan to cook 4 butts in my electric smoker this weekend.  Until now I have only smoked up  to 2 at a time. My smoker will hold 2 butts on a rack, so if I do 4 I will have one rack underneath  the other.  My question is there any thing I need to do differently given the upper butts will be dripping on the lower ones?  I plan to use a dry rub.  Thanks.

    I do multiple stacked racks of butts regularly and don't do anything special.  Since they're all the same meat I don't think there's any issue.  I have rotated them from top to bottom just to make sure the cooking is even on all the butts.

    Good luck,

    Forgot to mention . . . why don't you go over to the Roll Call section for a proper SMF welcome.  Be sure to include your location.

    nik....     I do 6 to 8 at a time a lot , and all I do is close the lid of the Smoker and leave it closed till it's time to pull ; around 200*f IMT. Turns out great for me...


    left alone , they cook a bit quicker too...just sayin'........

    Have fun and...
