I have a Large egg and I need to do 4 racks of baby back ribs at once. Need ideas and pics of the best way to put them on the grill at the same time. Any links to gear or racks would be appreciated my son says "mmmmm ribs"

    Here is 3 racks flat on a large 4 will be a tough fit unless you stand them up in a rack or do 2 levels.

    You can invert a v-rack and place the slabs in the slots in the rack. Long term you can get a Woo3 with an extender (see my post right below this one) and cook four slabs laid horizontal. I ordered mine from I called on Monday and the box was on the porch Thursday night when I got home from work.

    Though it works, and I have used it myself, the inverted v-rack is not my favorite solution. The slabs wind up touching each other which creates bark-free areas that just look ugly. It's nearly impossible to get a good glaze or sauce on the ribs if you go this route.

    The "best" way IMHO is the AR rig from ceramic grill store with the new oval stone, oval grids and slider. The long oval stone and grids protect the ribs from scorching and the slider makes moving them around a cinch. Check it out at and give Tom a call if you have any questions :)

    I have done as many as six racks at once using an inverted V rack. Probably not optimal, but it works. You could definitely do four w/o too much contact between them.

    Roll them and stand them on the rib end. Not the brisket end. A loose roll will allow smoke to penetrate.
