    I fired up Lucille yesterday to do some hickory spares, then something came up and I got distracted[​IMG] .

    To make a long story short, it got late, I threw on some balogna and sausge, ate that for dinner and pulled the ribs off with about 1 1/2 hours cooking time lacking.

    It's one thing to reheat ribs, but I'm trying tofigure out the best way to finish cooking them. Should I finish them in the oven, and if so, foiled or naked. That, or should I fire up Lucille again and finish them that way? Or maybe someone's got an even better idea.

    Hey Tim, this proably won't help, but, saturday I put a brisket flat in the smoker, it wasn't done by the time I had to go to the neighbors place for a get togather, so I foiled it and put it in a cooler wrapped in a towel, I put it in the ice box that nite and sunday put it back in the smoker, it never got more than 132 degrees and was tough as boot leather, I cooked it 4 hrs saturday and 7 on sunday. The good thing was that the tase was wonderful. [​IMG] Just too damn tough. This don't help you any, but just thought I'd throw it out there. [​IMG] Terry P.S.

    Tim, if it were me, I'd finish it in the oven. 1 1/2 hours foiled, 1/2 hour unfoiled, all at 220F.

    Linda and I hope you guys are doing well!

    I don't have any answers to your question but "Smokus Interruptus" sounds like an HBO special[​IMG]

    Being that they've been cooked (albeit not completely) I think I'd finish them in foil so they don't dry up any. Maybe add some moisture of some sort, apple juice, finishing sauce something and just open them up at the end to firm them up a tad.

    Tim, I believe I would do as Deb says. Thats the way we reheat the ones we freeze. Hope you are staying dry down there.

    Tim, I think you should box them up and mail up here and let me take a good look at them. [​IMG] A good second opinion is always worth the effort of doin it......
    And besides, if I happen to find a way to get them ribs cooked and tender, I will be more than happy to send you some pics and left over bones.... [​IMG]

    Here's what I did.

    1 hr @ 250* foiled laying down (an hour because they were still cold , I figured it'd take a half hour just to get them up to temp.). 45 minute @ 275* stood up in a v rack to let them self baste while they barked up. And of course the juices and grease from the foil wnet back on them.

    The bark was xlnt, the tenderness was just where it needed to be. The smoke penetration was incredible, they were pink almost all the way through, I wanted to take a pic, but the battery was dead on the camera. The flavor was (IMHO) better than most Q joints, but it just wasn't the same as if they'd been hickoried from start to finish. All in all it was better than going out to eat, and a fraction the cost.
