    Is there any benefit to smoking rib slabs on their edge(bones vertical)?

    The only reason I would smoke them that way is so I can get more of them in at one time! That's why they make rib racks.

    Good words, Welsh. I can't think of any better answer. Al, this is agood method to smoke a bunch of ribs that over extends the capacity of your flat smoking surface. Good smoking, Joe

    As when you smoke a brisket with the fat side up so the juices flavor the meat as it renders out, the fat helps when use a rack to let that flavor flow, if you put the heavy side at the top as well as the boney end toward the heat. Just my thought hope this helps!!
