I've always cooked spares and not baby backs.
As I mentioned last week, this weekend I'll be cooking Baby backs Saturday morning to bring to a party at 1:00. I have 6 racks (I think) and was going to try to cook them all in the large starting early Sat AM. I may go with two tiers, though my rib rack holds 4 and I could lean two up at each end.[p]I'm thinking they should take 5 hours (@ 250) to cook so I'll give myself 6 to work with.[p]Is 5 hours right? [p]I want to keep it simple, partly because of the quantity and time and partly because I always like to keep it simple and also I am not that bright. I will be prepping/rubbing the night before and letting them sit overnight rubbed and covered with saran wrap.[p] I'm not planning on foiling, but I'd love to get them good and tender- any recommendations? Maybe spritz with AJ through the chimney? I'm thinking I may try basting with honey after 60 - 90 minutes too.[p]either that or do what I always do and leave them alone until 1/2 hour before I expect them to be done.[p]Thanks!
