Old GLH stole my thunder...I get eight half racks if I hang em. I have laid them flat, I have used racks and I prefer hanging them. They cook more even and I get more room. I do like to leave a bit of space between them. Man, they sure are pretty when I open the door. Thanks for this. Just figured out my holiday smoke.
I just did 4 slabs of baby backs in a 008. I bought 2 of the rib/potato holders at Lowes and cut 2 of the slabs in half to be able to better fit in the racks. By putting the 2 of the half slabs in different slots on the holder I was able to put a full slab in a slot on the holder and then kind of wrap it around the holder and place it on a rack in my 008. I then did the same thing with the other 2 slabs and the other rib holder and placed them on a second rack. I hope that this makes sense.
I built two rib racks 14"x14" and can get 12 14" racks in or 12 half depending on the length of the rib. The racks lean at a 45deg angle tward the back of the smokette. Six slots each. I started using the generic rib/potato racks but found that upright ribs take up too much space. If I built three racks I could do 18 pieces.
If you purchase the five slot rack holders and a few more racks you can really squeese in a lot of meat!!
