    Holding Ribs overnight

    I am wanting to do 3 racks of baby back ribs for company that is coming and would like to smoke the night before to avoid the rush the next day. I have decided on a Malcom Reed technique.
    My question is.
    Would it be acceptable to cook the night before, refrigerate, and rewarm the next afternoon?
    Any tricks or techniques to rewarming if it is possible?
    I am willing to cook same day if the results are better. Just trying to save time.
    Thank you.

    There are a lot of good rib reheating tips over on this topic, Debra .


    Also a specific sous vide rib reheating method is mentioned here:




      Ditto, great question and answer.

      I learn so much on Amazing Ribs.com.
      After covid, I will have to try the above.


        I wrap in foil, fridge, then reheat at 200 for 3-4 hours in the morning to be ready by lunch. Sometimes I bump it to 250 the last 20 minutes or so if I don't think I had em in the oven long enough. Never had an issue with 'em being dry or anything. Though sometimes the glaze will try to stick to the foil if the oven is running a little hot.


          Hail yeah, it'll be jus fine...

          Wrap em tight to keep in moisture, mebbe even add a smidge yer fave liquid(s),beer, bourbon, wine, even some butter, too

          I do dry ribs, so I don't put no sauce, but you do you...
