The inlaws are coming for Memorial Day weekend. Father-in-law loves my ribs, so that's definitely on the menu. I know this is shocking to everyone, but my mother-in-law is difficult and doesn't like ribs. (WTF?). So I was thinking of smoking a whole chicken while the ribs were going.
Never done that before, so want to get thoughts on time and setup. I do the 3-1.5-1 method for ribs so I thought I would put the chicken in at about the 2.5 hour mark to give it about 3 hours to finish at 250 degrees at the felt line
Ideally I think I'd want the bird on the top rack to get a little more heat but I don't think I want the chicken drippings falling on the ribs for safety sake, so I'll probably put the ribs up top.
Thanks guys, I appreciate it.
