    Cold ribs are like cold pizza -- not my thing. Hubby doesn't mind, but I do.

    When microwaving leftovers like ribs, chicken, and other foods that you can't stir, I've learned I get better results with a gradual warm-up -- heat for a short time, let rest a minute or so, rearrange food if I can, heat a bit longer, rest, repeat. This reduces the chance the ends will get too hot and dry out while the middle is still cool or just barely warm.

    Another thing is to wrap foods like ribs and dogs in a damp paper towel before microwaving.

    I also will steam ribs over (not in) simmering water. This works nicely especially when I need to reheat more than just a couple-three pieces. When the surface of the ribs has gone from damp from condensation to mostly dry, the ribs are warm enough. This is similar to the crutch method others have mentioned already.

    I like reheating them in the oven verses the microwave, but like different cooking methods that produce great results they are both good.

      If you are worried about overheating in the microwave, just use a reduced power setting.

        I reheat in the wave at 50% power. Allows the meat to heat evenly from outside to the bone.

      I am going to be the odd ball. I vacuum seal most all leftovers. Then I just drop the sealed pack in boiling water. This method works best for me.

      Microwave if they make it there without my eating them in the short transit from the fridge to the science oven. Cold ribs are my kind of popsicle.

          I always use a microwave. I think the key to it is to bump down the power setting. A lot of people only run their microwave's at 100%. I rarely run mine about 50-60% power. Takes a little longer, but I never get that funky "microwave cooking" taste.

          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
