Sze Matters.....Baby Back Ribs Don't Fit
« on: February 05, 2012, 06:19:36 AM »
I'm new to all this so I hope another dumb question doesn't upset the "apple cart".  My neighbor brought down two racks of baby back ribs for me to smoke for the Super Bowl.  I've rubbed those dudes last night and just realized one of the racks is too long to fit in my obs.  Will it hurt the ribs to cut the rake so it will fit?

Go ahead and cut them down. They may even get done quicker. I have cut many baby backs.

WD56 has you covered.  No harm at all in cutting them in half.  Whack 'em and smoke 'em!
