Best way to reheat ribs?

Believe it or not, I finally have leftover ribs. (Before this, they've always been completely devoured on the first day, but I made eight racks, and we just couldn't finish them all.)[p]So what is the best way to preheat these puppies? I'm thinking about wrapping them in foil, maybe adding a little sauce (for moisture), and heating them in the oven at 300 for 20 minutes or so.[p]Does anyone have a special trick for reheating? Thanks!

    Prof Dan,[p]I personally like placing them in a gallon size storage bag and nuking them for about 1 minute or so.[p]My experience with oven heating has always been drying them out.[p]Hope this helps.

  • Prof Dan,[p]Wrapped in foil in the toaster-oven works for me.
    Try it with one rib to see if you like it.

  • Prof Dan,[p]Take a large bowl and put a few inches of water in the bottom. Insert one of those cheap steamers or even a small bowl to lay the ribs across and keep them out of the water. Cover with foil and reheat at 350-400 for 15-20 minutes. This way they'll be as tender as when you first pulled them off the Egg.
  • Prof Dan,
    I always vacuum pack any left over ribs when they cool down and then either freeze them or fridge them if I am planning on reheating them in the near future. When I am ready to reheat them I just drop the bag full of ribs in water and bring it to a boil. They are steaming hot and no loss of moisture. They taste like they just came off of the egg.

    Prof Dan,
    I'd echo what Pitbull said. I always vacuum seal them and then they don't dry out a bit when boiled in the bag to reheat.[p]If you don't have a Tilia or like, it will more than pay for itself in short order.
