4 racks on a large

I am about to finish up 4 racks of baby backs on my large. I think I should have cut them in half or had some other set up. Any thoughts on doing 4 whole slabs?

    There's another pic in that same thread. I don't recall ever seeing it, but thought I'd point it out. Half a dozen or so, curled up on what appears to be a Weber...

    What temp are cooking them at? Looks a little hot to me.

    Yeah, I might be concerned about temp.

    They may wind up a bit too barky.

    I bought 5 racks two weeks ago and I cut them all in half. Bad move! When they get cut in half they don't fit in the rib rack right at all. I think your set up is fine. My future is going to have a swing rack. That'll do the trick I think

    Again, nice phil.  4 to 6 is just right for the large.

    I did 5 racks of baby back ribs yesterday on XLg. I used two tiers, so there were three layers of ribs laying flat.

    Thanks for the comments. I haven't been too successful with ribs but these came out pretty good. I was distracted and my temp was all over the place. My next go round will be better as I have learned from this trial. I still need to figure out how to fit four or more racks.

    I have done 8 on the LBGE before I had 6 baby backs in the rib rack then criss crossed 2 over the top of the ribs on the rack. I will wrap the ends of the ones that hang over the platesetter with foil for the first hour so they don't cook too fast from being direct.
