    Hi All,

    I didn't find the answer to this question but I probably didn't dig hard enough either,  LOL. Either way here goes! I plan on smoking a rack of spares on Friday using a 2-2-1 method or some variation of that. I want to have a pan of beans in the smoker UNDER the ribs for the duration of the smoke. The question is this: When I trim and square off the rack can I put the breast bone, skirt, and other trimmings in the beans raw or should I smoke them on the rack and add them after they have finished cooking?

    Thanks for ALL the helpful info on this site, I spend far too much time here!

    Smoke on!!
  2. I cook mine first then add

  3. i cook them on the rack first then shread/chop the meat and add to the beans , i tried it raw in the beans and i didnt think the meat would ever get done plus cooking it first adds a great smoke flvor to the beans even if you cook them in the smoker .

    Cooking along with the ribs first was my thought as well but had to ask! Thanks for the input! Man you guys are fast!

    Also on spares use 3-2-1  not 2-2-1  :)
