What rack position?
« on: July 27, 2011, 10:52:19 pm »
So I'm doing a pork butt tomorrow and a brisket on Saturday, I have the 4 rack OBS which rack level should I use for just doing 1 thing at a time? Closer to the heating element or further away? And invade it matters I have the auber dual probe PID.

If you are only smoke/cooking one at a time, I would use the second rack position from the bottom. If you have the free style cabinet temperature probe, place that beneath the rack.

Why not do them both together? Reheated brisket is as good or better than the one fresh out of the smoker. Put a metal pan to catch the drippings and use that when you reheat, or cover in a pan with some beef brioth added and put in 325* oven until done. Both ways are good and youdon't have to worry about the timing between the 2. Just a thought.
