Help with chicken and ribs WSM
« on: May 07, 2018, 06:52:20 AM »
I'm about to fire up the 18" and smoke a rack of babybacks and a split chicken breast weighing 3 pounds.

The ribs should take about 6 hours I'm assuming, this is my first time on the WSM making these. But how long will the chicken take? I know I need the chicken on the lower rack for food safety but I'm thinking it won't take 6 hours?

So do I do the ribs on top rack then throw the chicken down below around the 3 hour mark?

I'm going to try and be around 250 degrees but it's supposed to get hot today so I'm guessing temps will want to rise?

Thanks for any help!

Well I decided to throw them both on at the same time, I didn't want to add wood twice and wreck the ribs. I'll just have to pull the chicken off when it's done and throw it a cooker till the ribs are done?

My preference would be to cook both at 300+. All would be done in 2-3 hours.
Actually chicken would be done in 1.5-2 hours most likely.
