Good question. Who's with who, and who's on top?

I'm planning on putting the brisket and butts on one WSM and I have a Rib rack that should allow me to get 6 racks on the top rack and I'll put the remaining 3 racks on the bottom. I'm also going to try to get the rib tips on there somewhere too. I'll post picks as I load them.

P.S. Thanks for the advice Diva!

Rooster, here's four racks of spares that I cut in half and got onto one rack of the WSM. I can't find pic's right now but I've done 6 racks of loin backs on the top rack, you just need to stack them ontop of the ribs in the rib rack. Kevin "Stogie" Taylor a BBQ Guru once did 9 racks using this method as well. Just when you stack them make sure you have proper air flow, if this is the route you take.

Well the ribs are on. I put 3 racks of spares on the bottom, 6 racks of BBs on top in the rack, and I even got the tips on the 1st WSM with the butts to boot.

Well I have good news and bad news. The good news everything turned out excellent. The bad news The guy who ordered the BBQ showed up a little early and I didn't get to take more pictures. I promis the ribs looked just like ribs and the brisket looked just like brisket, etc. I also want to thank Diva one more time for giving the insite on fitting all those ribs. I bet I could fit at least 12 racks on 1 WSM now.
