Butt and Ribs Together

Recommended Posts

I volunteered to supply the meat for the 4th of July. I was thinking about a pork butt and some ribs. I have an Char Griller Akorn and I thought i read on here about people doing a butt over ribs with the extender rack, but can't seem to find anything. Has anyone done this? Is there a better way? Thanks!

The thing is, they cook differently.


Ribs are only about an inch thick, so they cook in 4-6 hrs. Pork butt is much thicker, and takes more like 8-12 hrs. It's also is a bulletproof re-heat as pulled pork. Unless you're up for a challenge, I'd cook the butt anytime now, and  freeze it, then start the ribs early enough for planned service time on the 4th. I do it all the time. Ribs will profit from immediate service. 


HAve fun,

No need to cook and freeze the butt
