Anybody got pics of how one does six racks of ribs on a large? I've only done three racks and am starting to get concerned doing so many tomorrow. :S

    I did 6 the other day here at the shop (we recently got our shipment of Eggs® for the store) in a rib rack. I normally like to cook them flat, but this actually worked really well. Flip them at the halfway point, and when putting them in and taking them out, be gentle so you don't scrape off the rub.

    Was surprised how well they cooked.

  • I do six all the time in a rib rack. It is a little tight on the 2 on the outside but trust me they will fit and come out great.

    Thanks. That nagging feeling I had all last night has been placated.
    Thanks again. :side:

    Considering they will be coated with your rub, I will be especially careful.

    Still remember your shrimp on the Mini from my first after party at the Eggtoberfest.

    You got to love it.
    Earlier there was a posting about doing a split pig on the Egg. From this pic one has to wonder "Why bother if you can do ten pig's worth of ribs on a large?"
    Off to the store to buy them out of ribs. ;)

    I did mine this way. 8 racks. It was my first cook ever and I was nervous - turned out perfectly though. Had to trim the end two racks a little.

    I did six slabs of Baby Back ribs. I used my AR and I plan to do it again on Sunday using spare ribs trimmed St Louis style. Tim :)
