    I was wondering if anyone had any tips on holding/reheating ribs.

    I'm throwing a bbq for 50 ppl this weekend and plan to smoke 15 racks for my guests. I only have one smoker so I was thinking I'd start them then cool them down, I've been using the 2-2-1 method and it works great.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking maybe:

    Start them uncovered for 2 hours in the smoker

    Remove, foil + add liquid + refrigerate until 3-4 hrs before party starts

    Remove bring to room temp

    Cook for 2 hours covered

    Remove, cook for 1hr uncovered..

    Any suggestions!??! or better ideas?? :)

    you could do them all the day before and refrigerate
    reheat foiled in the oven , or in a roaster.
    or toss on the grill for a few minutes after letting them get to room temp.

    I've held ribs in a cooler for 4 hours and they were still nice an warm.

    I would just smoke the and refrigerate and then re-heat them in the oven slowly and you'll be Golden.
