This might be the dumbest question on using a charcoal smoker, but here goes...
I have the Brinkmann smoke and grill smoker and plan to smoke pork spareribs this weekend. I would like to smoke 3 or 4 spare ribs. So do I figure out a way to make the ribs lean against each other and stand up or do I have to smoke ribs with them laying down? Thanks!!
You can lay them flat it you do not find a rib rack that will fit your smoker. The benefit of the rack is being able to smoke more ribs at once. If you do not find a rack them you might be able to improvise something.
And by the way your question was not stupid at all. I bet there were other people out there wondering the same thing.
