    Short Rib Plates in a Rib Rack

    I've been successful with shorties in the past, but I have been asked for a big cook for father's day.

    I've got the Kamado Joe Classic III, so I bought a rib rack to accommodate this. That said, my butcher went big...five plates at a total of 24 pounds.

    They barely fit in the rack...and with the Slo Roller attachment on the Kamado, they barely even fit in the grill.

    So, here are my questions for you more battle tested smokers:

    1. Is this even going to cook well in the rack? I suspect some shrinkage, but with these so close together I'm worried I won't get a bark.

    2. What cook time am I looking at if I roll at 225?

    3. How long can beef ribs be held in a faux cambro?

    4. Should I just cut these down to single ribs and eliminate this headache?

    Thanks in advance.

    I personally would cut them down into single, or double rib sections. Allows for more bark and it can somewhat speed up the cook. You also get to make sure each rib is cooked properly and as you pull them you make more space on the grates.

      Agree with Donw

      Asking for a potential unbarked mess in them racks.

        I agree with Donw about cutting them smaller which gives you more bark and better control....I don't think this rib rack is made for this type of ribs, probably more suited for baby backs.

          defiantly wouldn't cook like that, would take forever and no bark and when cooked well might be the best cow you'll ever eat

            could take 10 12 hrs. and you could hold them good couple hrs.

              Thanks all. I'm slicing them up and starting at 4 am.
