    6 butts on an 18.5 WSM?

    Has anyone ever attempted to do 6 butts on an 18.5 WSM?

    I've done 4 butts a few times with success but have never tried 6

    a Good friend is having me do some pulled pork for a party this weekend and brought over 6 I told him 4 would be enough for the amount of people he is having but he picked up 6 saying he didn't want to run out!


    any ideas would be helpfull

    I was thinking doing the other 2 in crockpots?

    I have heard of people stacking a third on top of the two on each level like a triangle, I have never tried it.

    Once. Set on bone side, 3 on each rack. It's tight but doable.

    They really all fit under the lid, camera angle makes them look like they're hanging over the side

    Last summer I did 6 8-10 pounders for a dual graduation party I co-hosted. It was a little tight, but still had room to close the lid. I smoked a little lower temp wise(225-238) and with a full water pan. Looking back at my post from last year, it appears the session went almost 22 hours, and I had to do a full chimney fuel refill 3/4 of the way through.
