Just got through cooking my first ever batch of baby backs...turned out very good...will try to post pics later.

Made three racks and with just my wife and I eating, have quite a few leftovers. Any advice on the best method to store and then reheat baby back ribs?

Thanks. SchmeeTex

    When do you plan on reheating?

    I take ribs slice them apart store in ziploc gallons or food savers with some sauce and freeze. reheat in microwave.

    To be honest, they arent half bad cold.
  • :blush: mine never make it to the freezer!
    Just slip a rib or 2 or 3 out of the baggie, and zap for 45 seconds :woohoo: Great for breakfast B)

    Enough leftover for two batches...will reheat one this week and the other in another week or two. By the way, Mike, followed your recipe to a "T"...very good...although I'll still got a lot of room for improvement (should have put on more dry rub in the beginning and finishing sauce at the end.

  • then wrap the one you will freeze in HDAF before the Ziplock, and then you can reheat in the foil and finish on the Egg or under the broiler if desired B)

    Food saver both, freeze. Thaw in cold water. Reheat in a covered pan with foil, a little apple juice in the bottom of the pan.
    They will be fine.
    Enjoy and thx.
