St Loius Style Ribs This Weekend 1st Time Smoking Them

I'm going to smoke 11 racks of St Louis style spare ribs on Saturday. Hope they all fit ofn my Char-broil Silver. My son and I bought some Charcoal Companion brand roast / ribs racks to smoke them in. Got them for $9 each at Kohls today. They are heavy duty and have a non-stick finish. Each rack will hold 6 slabs. I might use the 3-2-1 method. I'm not sure yet. I'll see how it goes and play it by ear. I have read a lot about cooking ribs but have never smoked them yet. I bought full spare ribs and the butcher is cutting the tips to make them into STL style ribs. I will smoke the tips some other day. They were $2 a pound. I bought 14 racks. They are huge. I will share a few pics later. Also making some Pit Boys BBQ Baked Beans. "Um, smell that?" My brother-in-law gave me his moms #9 cast iron dutch oven with lid and handle. It's over 50 years old. Not sure what the #9 means. Maybe 9 quarts? In memory of her I'm calling it "Betty's BBQ Baked Beans". Cooking for 13 family menbers coming over for my daughters brithday party BBQ. Going to be a good weekend for smokin at my house.

Sounds like a lot of fun. That's a good price on the rins, too.
Your Brother In Law is very generous - old cast iron dutch ovens don't come cheap. Do you know the brand name of the dutch oven? A lot of numbers on old cast iron are a reference - such as a #9 Griswold skillet would be 11 inches.

Wow! Nice score on the DO. They are killer. I prefer St Louis cuts, think you get more from your dollar per pound. Good luck on the cook.

Didn't turn out too bad. Not perfect, but good enough to eat.
Also made the baked beans & jalopeno poppers.
