I've done Spares numerous times and have always chose those due to price. But, I decided to mix it up and went with some BBs from Costco. I got 2 racks going now along with 2 fatties stuffed with cream cheese, some turkey thighs to use for sandwiches during the week and the ABTs are going on in an hour or so. Smoking everything using pecan wood and I'm not doing any foiling (3-2-1, etc) for my ribs. I don't with Spares so not going to with BBs. I'm planning on 5 to 6 hours for the BBs?? My ECB is holding steady at 225* right now and I realize I need a bigger smoker because I'm not sure where my ABTs are going to go. lol.
