Freezing your ribs

Has anyone ever smoked, then frozen baby backs? Is there a secret to smoking large batches of ribs for future meals?

  • BBQ Mike,[p]I like to cook an extra slab or so of BB's and cut them individually and mix a little BBQ sauce and apple juice and place in a freezer ziploc and then take out as many as needed for the next snack/meal. Nuke couple minutes. Good as fresh.

  • BBQ Mike, I just did it last week for my sons birthday. I Smoked 4 racks, cut each in half, wrapped in foil and froze. We let them thaw, heated in oven @ 250° until hot.
    We couldn't tell them from being right out of the BGE.

  • Richard Fl,[p]What is the purpose of the sauce and juice? Do you ever experience freezer burn?

  • BBQ Mike,
    I do it quite often for friends. I don't sauce. Foil and let them cool. Try to vac save as warm as possible. You can boil in water to reheat, the entire package. Or thaw out, sauce and reheat at 275 for 15 minutes in oven.

  • BBQ Mike,[p]No freezer burn, they don't last that long. The liquid is maybe enough to lightly coat and then when in micro I do not have to worry about sauce. Have a 6 year old grandson who loves them and I never know when he is hungry. This just makes it simple.

    BBQ Mike,[p]It works well with all ribs. Boil to reheat. Double seal the bag to add an extra bit of safety against leaking. Great for a rainy day or unexpected guests. Enjoy!

  • BBQ Mike,
    I do it all the time. when you get the 3 pack at sam's i do all three and take the leftovers and slice them into singles and vacumn seal them in 6 packs. when you want to eat them just poke a couple holes in the bag and put in the micro on 50-60% for a couple minutes. just don't cook them to fast or hot and they come out awesome.
    Bon Apetit'
