Smoking Pork Ribs and Chicken together?
« on: June 20, 2010, 10:40:41 am »
Hey guys,

Just picked up my new 4 Rack DBS and seasoned it the other day. :) Love this forum, you guys actually gave me incentive to buy the DBS with your wonderful support for everyone coming in for help.

I'm planning on doing a rack of baby back ribs and 2lbs of chicken wings soon and will brine them the night before..my question is can I smoke both of them at the same time? Should I put the chicken on the bottom rack? Temp I should use? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

Will

Definitely put the chicken under the ribs.

Like FLBR said, Chicken on the bottom rack will work at 240 to 250.

Skip a rack then the ribs on 3rd rack.

put a catch pan under the vent on the top rack in case you get alot of moisture from the chicken.

Since they are BB's 2 hrs of smoke should be plenty and that will work for the chicken also.

Keep the vent wide open.

After the chicken is done, you could lower the ribs a rack down.

Just besure and monitor the temp under the lowest rack of product.

Nope, start you another post so we don't hijack this one and we'll see if we can help.

Sounds like the heating element is not coming on.
