Just finished an all night cook of a butt, had to reload lump to cook ribs, a lot of smoke, how long before I can put the ribs on?

Thanks in advance

    Until there's no smoke or just a hint of blue.
  • if you are placing new lump onto already hot coals you should be clear to cook in 10 to 15 minutes. however as previously posted, do wait until the smoke changes from the acrid white smoke to the desirable colorless or slightly blue smoke.
  • Hopefully you caught all the drippings from the butt cook in a pan otherwise it is going to take a LONG time to burn off all that fat from the lump.
