I'm getting ready for my 1st smoke and decided to do ribs.  I have a few people coming over and the butcher did not have enough baby back ribs so I bought some spare ribs as well.  What is the best way to go about cooking it all at the same time?

I'm thinking about just putting the baby back ribs in an hour after the spare ribs have started for a 3-2-1 for the spare and 2-2-1 for the baby back.

Any suggestions?

That's exactly what I do, but how many racks of each are we talking about? The more meat you put in the longer your recovery time is going to be. I find that about six racks of ribs is really pushing my OBS's capabilities.

When I do a mix, I start them at the same time. I usually do the spares at 3-2-1 and the BB at 3 -1.5 -1 (or 'til done). If the BB are done earlier I just FTC them until the rest are done.

2 slabs of bb and 1 of spare.  Got the spares going and will be putting the bb in in about 10 min.

Hi i wanted to say thanks for the recipe, i tried it and they came out fairly good, they just seemed a little tougher then we usually like, at 5 hours in they felt really soft an in the last hour they toughened up quite a big.

Should i just take them off at 5 hours? this was my first attempt at smoking.

Yep you can pull them at 5 hours if you want. This recipe is just basic guidelines to get you started. Then you can make adjustments as needed to suit your tastes.
