Just bought a propane vertical smoker at Lowes. Master Forge $150.00. Been using the indirect charcoal method for years, but went to a superbowl party this past weekend and had ribs that had been cooked six hours in a vertical smoker and they were the best I've ever had. I dont really know where to place different meats and cooking times. I've got three 1/2 racks of ribs on right now and I bought 5 chicken legs. The ribs are on top and I'm not really sure when to put the chicken on. I put ribs on at 2:00pm.
