How does BBQ ribs vacuum freeze and warm up.


  • It's rather rare that we have any left over, but we have cooked too much before ;)

    I have found it is easier to vac seal dry or "naked" ribs and they reheat nicely. It's not as good as straight from the pit, but it's a nice treat when you get home from work in the middle of the week and don't have 5-6 hours to make dinner!

    Take care in reheating them. I like to remove them from the packaging, wrap in foil with just a smidgen* of sauce, and then reheat slowly in an oven for about an hour at 250f.

    *That is a US smidgen....not metric :laugh: :P

    I reheat them in the vacuum bag in simmering water, they come out perfect. -RP

    They do just fine! Double seal the vac bag so that you can safely warm them in simmering water. It may be neccessary to get some plastic wrap and wad it up to cushion the bag from the sharp edges of the bones. Even a small prick in the bag can cause bad results. :blush: You know what I meant. :whistle:
  • I plan on reheating brisket from yesterday in vacuum bags.

    Sliced it this morning after being in the fridge all night

    Put about six slices per vacuum bag

    Added an ounce or two of coke to each bag and put them back in the fridge

    Haven't put them in the freezer yet, but I don't see why this wouldn't work. I would think this would work for ribs as well.
