    Default Rack of pork

    Has anyone smoked a rack of pork. I have a 7.5 pound one and would appreciate any advice.

    I have not, but I would treat it like a pork loin, and smoke it with apple and cherry, or all cherry, to an internal temp of about 165. I'd think about rubbing it with a brown sugar, black pepper and ginger rub, and let it sit in the fridge overnight before smoking. I'd probably start around 225. I'd think a starting time, as a pure guess, would be around 6 hours, taking into consideration the bones, which will tend to slow things down a bit. Hopefully others will be along shortly. Good luck, and let us know how it turns out!

    I just followed your directions. I used an off the shelf pork/rib rub. They all seem to have the same stuff. I covered it with the rub and left in in the fridge over night. I took it to 170, right at 5 1/2 hours@225. I let it sit for an hour covered then sliced it between the rib bones. It came out very moist and tender. Thanks for your pointers, much appreciated! Today I’m trying a pork butt for pulled pork sandwiches.
