St Louis Ribs

  1. Hi Everyone,

    Having a smoke fest this weekend and need to cook stuff in shifts - not worried about  resting butt in the cooler but I've never had to do it for ribs.  Can ribs hang out in a cooler for a couple of hours?  Do I need to cook them differently if they'll be resting?  I usually cook 3-2 - 1ish.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. yes you can hold the ribs the same way.

    Happy smoken.

    When I am cooking for a crowd with a mix of meats I too often cook in shifts. Ribs are fine cooked the previous day and then wrapped in foil and chilled. To re-warm, place them back in the smoker (or the oven, or in your gas grill) in the foil for about an hour on a low heat before serving. I actually find that the resting in foil while they cool works well and once re-warmed they will stay nice and moist looking after being cut for a lot longer.

    Initially cook as normal 3-2-1
