Ribs and chicken together?

Is it possible to cook ribs and throw on some bone in chicken breast and have them done together?

    I didn't think so either. It's a moot point now because my house full of people just became so I will do the chicken tomorrow. Thanks

    Of course its possible, but chicken doesn't really benefit from low heat. I would wait till ribs are off, crank the temp to about 400 then cook the chicken. It won't take long.

    ps...the troll was jerking you. Why would it not be possible?
  • Slingblade, I understood that Mark0525 was not literally asking whether or not it was possible (of course anything is 'possible'), but rather whether or not it would be a good idea? Didn't you, in the end, provide the exact same answer as the 'troll', in a more wordy fashion?

    The other day I did two whole chickens by themselves, I got the dome at 250 and let the chickens go indirect with some dizzy pig on them. They went for over 3-1/2 hours, I waited till the thickest part of the thigh/leg area got to 180, your time may vary, but came out great, a long cook for chicken but it was all done and very juicy and not dry.
