inverted V rack

I assume ribs draped horizontally over the rack rather than vertically in the rack.

n'est pas?

    I'm not CWM nor do I plan to offer any advice under his expertise, but I just finished two racks on Sunday using his methods.

    I draped one over laying flat and had to cut the other slab in half to keep most of the meat over the platesetter. The smaller sections sat in the slots of the inverted v rack vertically. They also finished faster than the center slab, most likely due to the location of the ribs being next to the edge of the plate setter. I had to adjust them and rotate them as necessary when cooking twice. They will curl up a little bit if you set them in the rack vertically. How many racks are you doing and how are they coming along?

    I wasn't sure where I'd get the fastest answer so I posted and e-mailed...he got back to me via e-mail rather quickly.

    I'm doing 3 racks - the're coming up to the 3 hour mark and they all seem to be doing well. They smell amazing -I've never cooked ribs this long before - I just feel like taking them off and eating them. But I won't - i have will power - I think!

    I hope to follow up with wings once I pull the ribs.
    They are patiently waiting in the fridge.

    Yeah it was a first for me too. 5 1/2 hours seemed like forever to wait for them to come off, but well worth it. Good luck and happy eating.
  • what time is dinner? ;)

    Somewhere between 1700-1800 so we're right on schedule!
