    Kalmia,

    If you have to freeze the ribs, you've obviously done something
    terribly wrong.

    Dare me to leave leftover ribs. It's against some sort of
    unwritten law!!!

    Ask me over and I'll prove it! :-)

    Absolutely. Even if they've been sauced. Then (you didn't ask) to reheat:
    thaw, wrap in foil and reheat at about 350F for about 20 minutes.

    Yes. They reheat best with the boil-in-bag method.

    Why not, that's exactly what most BBQ restos serve... I see cooked
    ribs being sold in the market all the time, frozen and not frozen. The
    dago resto down the road serves a special dinner consisting of a rack
    of bbq ribs and half a rotisserie chicken... I sometimes do a take
    out, they're very good but I know both were cooked and frozen... they
    reheat in one of their pizza ovens. It comes with a nice tossed salad
    and garlic knots, I order it with the sauce on the side, my cats don't
    like bbq sauce and I can live without that sweet glop too.

    Ribs reheat best in a microwave oven at medium power.

    Yes, no problem.

    Reheating is best done in a nuke, believe it or not. Slow oven reheating
    tends to cause already cooked barbecued meats to become overcooked and
    mushy, or dried out. Worst case, you get both, falling apart but feeling
    like sawdust on the palate. Ribs and other Q can be boiled in a vac pack,
    but bony stuff is harder to keep sealed well unless you have very heavy duty
    vac bags and you have to use a big pot to keep the edges of the bag from
    touching bottom, which in turn generates more heat and uses more energy. A
    quick shot in the nuke, at low power, then a rest, then another quick shot
    if needed will warm up barbecued meats without turning them to mush.

    Even if the ribs were not cooked in a grill or smoker, the same principles
    apply, assuming they were properly cooked to begin with.

    That method really risks turning the rib meat to mush. If they are already
    cooked, it doesn't take much to push them over the line, especially in foil.

    BS BS BS BS.

    Maybe where you live where there is no such thing as good barbecue they can
    pass that off in a restaurant. Here in Kansas City, cooking, freezing,
    thawing, reheating, and then serving ribs in a restaurant will get you
    tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail.

    Low to medium depending on the power rating of the nuke. At 1000 watts I
    wouldn't go higher than 40%. So yeah, you're actually right this time. Good
    Q has already had just the right amount of heat applied over just the right
    amount of time. Reheating in foil or reheating slowly in an oven just messes
    up all that hard work.

    You bet. You can freeze them with sauce on them, too, if you prefer. I
    like to buy a package at Costco (3 racks), bake them, and freeze them
    for heating (after thawing) on the grill, adding sauce at that time.
    YMMV. Good luck with it. They're nice to have on hand.
