I don't like it. See how much a Smokaroma pressure cooker/smoker costs. They'll do 45lbs at a time or 90lbs in their big one.
Is this a one time deal, or do you plan to continue doing it?

These look awesome, but not quite large enough. Thanks, though!

Nacho daddy has really good points except DO NOT put bbq sauce on your ribs and DO NOT cook them in foil.
 Quoting: Feerlyss


I know why not in bbq sauce but why not in foil for the last hour? Seems to make a difference in the moisture.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74242198


Well my slurry keeps that moisture in for you that and maintaining the right temp. Amazing what 5 degrees difference can do to your meat.

Re: I need to slow roast 10 racks of ribs at a time
Does it have to be cooked at the event? Is this a competition or are you just feeding a bunch of people? If you're just feeding, you could precook wrapped in foil in your oven, and possibly use a few neighbor's ovens. Finish off at the event with a few propane grills to caramelize sauce and reheat.

I did this for a retirement party but instead of ribs, I cooked up 250+ bacon wrapped chicken legs. Huge success.

I smoke mine in a smoker by master built. 3 2 1 method, 225 3 hours of smoke, then foil them with apple juice 2 hours, then take apple juice n rendered fat mix honey ketchup n peach white balsamic vinegar for my sauce. 1 hr 225 to firm back up.
 Quoting: Coastie patriot 73191545


That is a good idea...never used the juice after which was a waste because that is the flavor. Thanks for the tip.

 Quoting: TlvmmCpoft


Come on over! Beer's in the fridge ;)

Go get 2 cheap electric smokers for 250 each. You can use them to smoke or just maintain temps and it's 1/3 of what you're looking at. You can get them from amazon or some other chinaman.
 Quoting: rolltiderv2


I forgot to add that I need these suckers to roast "slowly" as quickly as possible.

Thus the need for (ideally) a pressure oven.
 Quoting: Anymous Cowboy

Ive been cooking professionally for 25 years, never heard of a "pressure oven". There are a couple good suggestions so far, I would go with one of them. For the love of god dont let your lamb cook for 4 hours.

Re: I need to slow roast 10 racks of ribs at a time
No doubt you will shell out money for a smoker that has enough space for 10 racks. That being said if you do have the ability to do this then it does not change the time. The most ribs I’ve cooked at 1 time was 37 racks in an Ole Hickory brand smoker. That’s a huge machine though.
 Quoting: Feerlyss


This sounds like the exact thing I need.

I can sell so many of these.

Oh yes, they even has them on trailers!

Other than needing that foil your method is great. We’ve definitely used apple juice for our slurry before bet your ribs are great.

Most sauces are commercial and they have corn syrup and sugar by the town, you would only need like 5 to 10 min to glaze ribs with commercial sauce

Yes the smoke from the fat and the juice add to the flavor of the sauce. It makes a lot of sauce, try to render downs the apple juice n fat first thicken it up then the ketchup n honey to reduce a little more

Gotcha. Just looking for cheaper solutions rather than making a large purchase for a smoker that you may never use again. A 10 rack capable smoker is fairly large to be sitting in your back yard for single family dinner use ;)

For an event I’ve done baby back ribs in the oven first

I use a broiler pan filled with beer, Honey Brown, cover it in foil with a few hole pokes and steam the ribs for a few hours

You can keep them wrapped in foil until the party or in a huge tin container

Then at the party BBQ them with the sauce

Steaming them in beer gives them the best flavor.

My sauce is usually big bottle of Sweet Baby Rays, butter, garlic, soy and brown sugar

Re: I need to slow roast 10 racks of ribs at a time
You don't need a smoker...a regular oven will do. I assume you are talking about baby back ribs.
 Quoting: nacho daddy


Yes...

Remove silver skin from the inside of ribs before you do anything.

Place a rack of ribs in a double layer of aluminum foil face up. baste with Sweet Baby Ray BBQ sauce and add 1/2 cup chicken broth under the ribs.


Wrap tightly and do the same for all ten racks.


Put 1 oven rack 1 space above the center of the oven and the other oven rack one space below center. you need this space for air circulation. Heat oven to 300 degrees and put 5 wrapped packs of ribs on the top rack and 5 on the bottom rack.

Bake for 1 hour then switch the top ribs to the bottom and vice versa.

Bake another hour.

After that hour unwrap ribs and expose the tops so that the bbq sauce can carmelize. Baste the ribs with bbq sauce every 15 minutes for one hour.

They will be finished and ready to fall off the bone.
 Quoting: nacho daddy


That sounds soooo freaking awesome. I will have to run some tests.

Q: Stacking the ribs 5 to a stack doesn't make the inner racks cook too slow?

Q: Can I do this in a larger oven with like 4 or more 5-packs of ribs? Like a vertical commercial oven?

Q: It seems that by far the hardest part for me will be the last hour of caramelizing. Is there a way to make that less attention-requiring?
 Quoting: Anymous Cowboy

There is no stacking...you are laying the packets of ribs side by side.

The reason for the bbq sauce is to infuse the ribs with flavor.
The reason for the chicken broth is to keep the meat moisturized.
The reason for sealing the foil is to keep moisture in and provide a slightly pressurized cooking environment.
The reason you switch the top and bottom packets after an hour is to make sure they cook evenly.

The reason you cook the last hour with tops open is to build up a caramelized topping on the ribs by basting every 15 minutes.
