Ribs and brisket together
« on: August 18, 2008, 07:51:11 PM »
Hello and thanks for reading and hopefully replying. I just got my OBS and so far smoked a boston butt and yesterday spareribs. Good results so far. My question is I want to smoke a brisket and spareribs now and is it acceptable to put them both in the smoker together or is this inadvisable? I'm thinking it's not a good idea but could you experts fill me in. Also I read in the manual not to put foil in the smoker, but i read of folk wrapping in foil all the time in the Bradley. Oh last thing I promise. Where can i order some of that Icemans sauce and rubs I always read about. Sorry if I'm posting ignorant questions but I really need help. Thanks a lot.

W E L C O M E  to the Forum AFSmoker!

You can put them both in at the same time. The brisket is going to take alot longer. You can foil-wrap items in the Bradley, just don't put foil on the V-tray. A PM (private message) ((Use "My Messages" on the toolbar)) to ICEMan and he will hook you up.

Welcome aboard AFS! 

FL got ya hooked up to the Iceman!  Brisket and ribs can be done at the same time, and once again FL nailed it the brisket is gonna take a heck of alot longer...now I don't do very many pork ribs, mainly beef ribs, short or back ribs and they take about 6-8 hours.  With brisket your looking at least 14-20 hours of cook time or longer!  Foil in the BS, I think...and again I say think is OK to a point, once your smoke is done your basically in an oven.  I've done smoked baked taters, squash casserole and mac and cheese with foil, but these were already cooked and just puttin smoke to them!  And nope no ignorant questions here thats what these guys are here for......Oh yeah, use mesquite!   ;D

Its amazing what one can accomplish when one doesn't know what one can't do!

AFSmoker;

Welcome to the forum.

In addition to FLB information, you should not fully cover any of the racks with foil. Always leave enough open space so that smoke and heat can freely circulate.
