It is a query I get fairly typically and it’s an excellent one to think about.
I acquired this query from Gene yesterday:
Hello Jeff, for the Holidays I wish to smoke a spiral pre-cooked ham and a Prime Rib collectively, have you ever ever smoke two totally different meats on the similar time, if that’s the case are you able to provide me some advise. Thank You, Gene
The primary consideration is the way you place issues if they will be on a number of racks and there’s an opportunity they may drip on different items of meat.
I all the time place hen under every little thing else then pork on high of that. Beef is mostly the most secure factor to have on high.
In Gene’s case, he’s smoking prime rib with ham. The spiral minimize ham is already cooked and he’s simply including extra smoke taste to it so on this occasion, it ought to go on high and the prime rib under.
When smoking meat, ideally you need every little thing to be accomplished on the similar time so that you simply need to estimate how lengthy you assume it’s going to take and subtract that point from what time you need it accomplished.
Right here’s a time and temperature chart that ought to assist with the estimation
For example, a smoked prime rib will most likely take about 5 hours in case you are sustaining a smoker temperature of about 225°F (107°C) and we we usually double smoke spiral minimize hams for round 3 hours at that very same temperature.
If you wish to eat Christmas dinner at 5 PM then the prime rib goes in at midday and the ham goes in at 2 PM.
Prime Rib: 5 PM minus 5 hours = 12 PM
Ham: 5 PM minus 3 hours = 2 PM
Relying on the scale of your smoker, smoking a number of issues in the identical smoker mustn’t improve the cook dinner time by a major quantity.
I like to recommend preheating the smoker to a barely increased temperature than you’d usually after which as soon as you place the prime rib into the smoker, you may flip it all the way down to what you actually need to cook dinner at.
In case you are utilizing a pellet smoker, right here’s some particular ideas that needs to be useful
I wish to fill the smoker up with a number of objects if I can particularly across the holidays when I’m doing the entree in addition to appetizers.
So long as the warmth and the smoke can transfer freely within the smoker and there’s somewhat area between the objects, it shouldn’t be an issue.
It by no means hurts so as to add 30-60 minutes to your estimated cook dinner time to present the meat time to relaxation on the finish earlier than you slice into it.
