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!!
