It is a query I get fairly usually and it’s a great one to contemplate.
I obtained 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 completely different meats on the identical time, if that’s the case are you able to supply me some advise. Thank You, Gene
The primary consideration is the way you place issues if they’ll be on a number of racks and there’s an opportunity they might 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 lower 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 identical time so that you simply should 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 in all probability take about 5 hours if you’re sustaining a smoker temperature of about 225°F (107°C) and we we usually double smoke spiral lower 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 big quantity.
I like to recommend preheating the smoker to a barely greater temperature than you’ll usually after which as soon as you set the prime rib into the smoker, you may flip it all the way down to what you actually wish to cook dinner at.
If you’re utilizing a pellet smoker, right here’s some particular ideas that needs to be useful
I prefer to fill the smoker up with a number of gadgets 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 a little bit area between the gadgets, 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.
