Hey guys I am new to the forum. I have been smoking for a while and typically smoke a few items at a time without over loading my pit. Here is my problem - My wife and I decided to host a BBQ for Labor Day and many of our guest have had my ribs on different occasions. A request was made to serve the fabulous ribs. This BBQ was going to be a bit larger than usual so I was going to get started a bit earlier then usual to make sure everything was done in time. Now my wife has invited several additional guests and I was given the new list of items needed to be smoked to insure there is enough food for evetryone. 2 - Pork Butts 4 - Chickens 8 - Slabs of Ribs I typically Use the 3-2-1 method for my ribs but I was thinking about pre cooking the ribs or partially cooking the ribs? Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to a method to get all this meat cooked without watching my pit for 48 hours and sleeping through the party?
