    If it were me, I would put the butt and brisket on the 2 top racks as you mentioned.  Don't know what type of smoker you have, but typically the upper racks get more heat than the lower ones, so you can get both:  the butt basting the ribs underneath, and potentially a faster cook.  I think the basting part would be the kicker.

      I would do as Polishmeat said and you had in mind. You don't want raw pork juices dripping onto your formed bark and nearly done butt and brisket.

    Polish , welcome to our World. Really hopr you enjot it and  stay as a Bro. in Smoke (opps! or a Sister).

    this may do what you need :

    Any rack for these , you'll be placing the Butt and Brisky in first for sure ,so top. May save some heat when you put the ribs in and the Basting from the other will be fantastic. [​IMG]

    Get a good reliable thermometer , place in meat to track "temperature of the Meat" and use a "guestamate" of 1.5hrs. of cooking @225*f / pound of meat. Again , only to track time as Briskys and Butts are notorious for long Stalls. Don't worry , be Patient . (Don't worry be happy -Bobby Farin in background).

    When you place the ribs in ,here some reading :

    Have fun and as always. . .
