Hey y'all.

I've been using my Cheyenne for about a year and I'm loving it so far. I've made baby back ribs on there multiple times now. However, I can only really fit about 5 slabs of baby backs lying flat.

I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for a rib rack that can fit inside of my Cheyenne so I can smoke about 6-8 at a time.

Thanks!

Thanks Herb! I assume two things then: one, it will fit in my Cheyenne and two, the ribs and rack will sit along the length of the smoker, not the width correct?

The Cheyenne has 2 grates that are 16.75"x15". The short rack is approximately 11.5 x 5 x 11 inches and the long rack is approximately 18 x 5 x 11.5 inches.

You will have to decide how to place the ribs in the cooker, considering the curve of the body (headroom for the ribs standing on end), the dimensions of the racks, and the length and width of the ribs.
