I have a v rack for ribs. Going to turn it over and put a butt in it in hopes I can but a grate on top with a slab of ribs.

Anyone done that? If so can I do the butt for 4-5 hours then add the ribs and take em all off together?

  • Sounds like your biting off more then you can chew for your first low and slow. Maybe you should consider just cooking a butt alone, and then try ribs next weekend. A boston butt is a great first low and slow cook. It's extreamley forgiving and almost always produces a fantastic result. Ribs are definitely a little more difficult, and beef brisket is an absolute ****.

    First pork shoulder.  I expected 5 or 6 hours, and it took 11.  Tastes wonderful.

    Yea... Maybe I should try just one thing first. I'd hate my butt to stall and ribs to flop.

    @Doc_eggerton
    Is that the butt we've all been watching from your stall post! Looks awesome!!

    Yes, and it is delicious.  I will do a bigger one next time, and leave more time.  Thanks to Cen-Tex Smoker for his mentoring.
