    Suggestions on reheating ribs?  I usually throw them in the oven, but last time, it seemed to dry them out a bit.  Maybe it was too hot or too long?  Should I wrap in foil?  What works for you?

    Wrap in foil with some moisture at 145'. Should hold good.

    I vacum seal whole racks and then reheat in the bag in a pan of simmering water.

     or you can get a broiler pan w/ rack and steam the ribs. DO NOT cover when steaming as it will make the ribs soft.

    I reheat almost everything in the oven except BBQ.  I generally hate the microwave but it works well for BBQ because of moisture.  I've done brisket in foil with a little apple juice in the oven and it was OK.

    Now I never re-heat in the oven and now I re-heat using a pasta pot/ steamer pot. I just boil water and give them a few minutess to heat up. To me it seems to keep the meat moist and it brings out smokey flavor a little bit more to Me

    I usually wrap in foil and reheat in low oven.

    I've also nuked them with good results.  Just make sure you wrap them in damp towels or something. 
  7. crock pot with a little sauce / liquid works well too.  Any low heat, moist envorionment.  Avoid microwave at all costs.

    I usually foil and put in a 225-250 degree oven for 30 minutes give or take. You can also microwave on MEDIUM, never use HIGH unless you're heating tea water or cooking popcorn.

    But will heat wrapped in foil in the oven for a few ribs, NEVER the microwave, my wife will eat them cold.
