    Howdy, Jay!

    Is the rib rack you used the "Master Forge Chrome Potato and Rib Rack" from Lowe's?

    Morning Barbara Jo:

    Yes it is...I actually have two of them, but haven't used either one in quite some time (since I got the adjustable rig from Tom)...but that rack did a great job that day!

    Have a GREAT day!

    If I can do 3 racks on a small you can surely fit 4 on a mini. :whistle:

    Here is what I would use on the small, half them and then lay two halves across the top. That medium is a much larger cooker and shouldn't be a problem.

    Baby backs or spares? ;)

    Do you have a lot of eggsperiance with cooking ribs or is this a first?

    Hahahaha, OK Adam . . .

    I only do 3 racks cut in half. I have done more and arranged them like Jay but didn't think it was worth the hassles when I had to rearrange everything due to hot spots in my medium egg. I have only done baby backs, spares are larger and I am no help there. :)

    I think THIS POST is the last and best ribs I have cooked. :cheer:

    Did I do OK?

    I did 4 racks easily. Used a BGE rib rack. 2 full, uncut racks in the center and the other 2 racks cut in half on the outside. I probably could have gotten 2 more racks squeezed in.
