    Thanks, jfmorris and FishTalesNC for the information. I'd love to get a 26 inch Weber for even more real estate than my WSCGC, but really don't need one. I sure love looking at them in the stores, though. I was just surprised that, with all that room, a rib rack was necessary, but can now follow the logic. Good to know about how to mitigate the uneven heating when using a rib rack.

    Nice job on the ribs. And a great DRE to help!

    FishTalesNC yeah, unless I am reverse searing with the SNS, I use the Grillgrates for all my charcoal direct grilling. Let’s me use the entire grill for stuff like chicken, chops, burgers, without fooling with a 2 zone setup for those items.

    Thx jfmorris I’ll have to try that next time - no flipping & rotating would be a win. Btw I keep seeing your full set of grill grates for your Performer, think I “need” that as well, you’ve convinced me.

    fzxdoc I’m a noob, got my SNS for Christmas, still finding my way. I have found I need to rotate them within the rack 1/2 way thru, and as you can see it still looks uneven on edges. 🤔 I do want a PBC for my next cooker thx to your posts btw - esp for chicken. And I’ve passed on some of your InstaPot wisdom to my wife, she got one a few weeks ago! 👍🏻

    Kathryn what I’ve found with the rack on a kettle is the top edge does cook a little faster than the edge towards the grate, due to the temperature being higher that far above the grate. I just flip the slabs of ribs end to end about halfway through the cook. I wouldn’t use the rack unless doing more than 2 on the kettle though.

    FishTalesNC I’ve found that with water in the SNS you can pretty much have meat just short of the SNS and it’s still cool. That water trough area creates a good thermal buffer at grate level. Heat rises after all, and the ribs flat on the grate won’t get over cooked near the SNS like you might think.

    Quite the expert indeed. What a cutie.

    So you use a rib rack even on a 26 incher? Good to know.

    Kathryn

    P.S. I just now read your comment above about it. I have yet to use a rib rack. For some reason I've been leery of them. Dunno why--maybe concerned about non-uniform cooking?

    That’s a great point dshaffes I thought about that because we loved the BH rub on a recent pulled pork smoke with BH TN Red sauce. A “controlled” sauce was the best I could do for today’s experiment, but still not an ideal test as you noted. Nothing went as planned this entire weekend tho! 😆

    I was just wondering because I have found that saucing needs to balance with the rubs. Thanks for the quick reply.

    I would if it were just me, my wife and kid wouldn’t be as keen on it. I was also expecting neighbors so wanted a sauce - but they no showed! Leftovers tomorrow!, 👍🏻

    Would you think about doing the test without sauce?

    It’s a good point jfmorris. I think they may fit flat but the edge of the one would be way too close to the SNS. I’d be rotating a lot more often to avoid turning it into a cinder. I should try it sometime tho and rotate, cuz the rack has its own pains...

    Great looking cook, cute DRE! I don’t think my daughters would help me now, but at that age they were willing! Somehow I figured you wouldn’t need a rib rack for just 3 racks on the 26”. I of course us one for more than 2 racks on my Performer.
