The short answer: Yes, it is possible to do and you can still turn out some delicious barbecue in the process. Whether you are smoking or barbecuing multiple pieces of the same type of meat or different types of meat, there are some things to keep in mind to make sure everything goes smoothly.
Mistake #3: Overloading the Cooking Chamber There are smokers that can hold 8 racks of ribs without a sweat. When you place too much meat in a smoker, you compromise on a number of things. For one, more cold meat in the chamber means the heat will be harder to handle, and cooking times will definitely be longer.
