How to maximize the rib count in my WSM???
Hey, a question to all of you on how to do this. I have two not-so-shiny-anymore WSMs (by the way, thanks Bill for your assembly work. It hasn't fallen apart yet).
I have 2 rib racks that hold 4 racks of ribs (4 slots). so the ribs are vertical. So one for each of the top WSM racks. That's 8 racks of ribs. However, it's too tall for my lower WSM rack, so I assume I'd have to lay my ribs there on the sides and flip occasionally. Is this correct or is there anything I'm missing. So, I can only make a few racks of ribs on the lower WSM rack, right? So unless I want to do a lot of drinking...err. bbqing, I'm only gonna get maybe (let's do the math.. 4+4=8 for the top and 2?+2 on the bottom= 8 for the party and 4 for me personally) not to mention no room for any fatties.
Is this the basic excuse I need to get a bigger rig or something??? I'm not trying to feed 40 people yet or anything, but I do have a Xmas party I'm going to and I'm assuming 8 racks of ribs would go pretty fast with a bunch of youth football coaches. They'll eat anything, especially if free. Thanks...
