Help with Ribs

  1. [​IMG] I bought two racks of baby back ribs. Not all my guests can make it. Should I freeze one or should I smoke both.
    I'm not sure if I can freeze a fresh rack or smoke it and vacuum pack it for later use,

    Two racks? That is a single serving size. [​IMG]

    That's why I now buy spares for my backyard events...I would demolish a whole rack of BB's by myself!

    I freeze ribs, and they are just fine for smoking later. In fact, I get a little nervous if I don't have something in the freezer on backup reserve for those smoke emergencies! Just be sure you work all of the air out of your package to prevent freezer burn. If I stock up, I use the food saver if they don't already come in a cryovac package.

    Just my $.02

    I would freeze them uncooked as well

    Thats exactly what we do.It is hard finding quality competition ribs here so we st.louis trim spareribs and vac-u-seal and freeze- as we find them.

    Exactly what the man said, that's my line and I'm sticking to it.

    You don't say how many people you are having. In my house two racks are an appetizer. If you don't finish them off, keep in fridge for a snack or leftovers next day.
