FAQ Subject: How much time per pound of ribs?

I will be smoking about 20 lbs of country ribs using my two electric smokers. (Brinkman) How much time for pound should I give them. The same question applies to chicken breast - no bones or skin. All I can find for recipes are either whole chickens, halved or quartered or in the case of port - bone in ribs.

Thank you for your help

HI Ed,

Sorry to be tardy. Was in KC, MO judging the American Royal Barbecue Contest..

I hope that you clicked into "According to Smoky" and read the "Glossary" to find what you meant when you wrote "smoking," and then read "Burning Wood & Blowing Smoke."

The next thing you need to do is get an accurate thermometer so you can tell what the temperature inside the cooker/smoker is. Time is a function of temperatures ---- the meat at the start, the temperature inside the cooker, the ambient temperature at the time.

If you cook at roasting temperatures (350°) the time will be 25-30% of the time for barbecuing temperatures (210°)

I recommend that you click into the Barbecue Store from and check out "The Great American Barbecue & Grilling Manual" which can turn you from a tyro to a pro easily and pleasantly.

Have fun,

The Barbecue Store
