I apologize if I am not following the correct protocol but I don't have a lot of time. Forgive me in advance. I'm smoking 16 Boston Butts on Friday evening. I want to throw in 9 whole chickens and some slabs of ribs. The smoker grates will mostly be full of the butts in pans so I'll have to mingle the chickens and ribs in between somehow. There should be room between the pans but it will be tight. You should be able to see the pics of my smoker on my profile on here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
