View Full Version : Holding Ribs

Just wondering if anyone is holding ribs in a Cambro? Right now I do not, but I could see a possible advantage of finishing at a consistent time. If you do hold ribs, what advantage do you think it gives you?

After we set our sauce we put them in the cambro for up to 1 1/2 hr -2 hr before we build the box we will spray with AJ and had good results

For us... we pretty much slice, box and turn in. Ribs are a narrow window...for us.

Depends on how fast they get done. I try not to hold them but if I'm done too early then I will.

Havent had the need, but am curious as well. Ribs and chicken are pretty dialed in time-wise, but there's always a need for an emergency back up plan someday.

Same here on ribs and chicken, strict timeline, from smoker to turn ins, but I have often wondered how maybe a one hour or more rest might help or hinder my product. Seems like a good Winter experiment...

There are plenty of good rib cooks on either side of this coin.
We do not hold our ribs. Straight from cooker to cutting board after some rest.
Our timing is pretty close..usually at the most we have had to pan and foil for 30 minutes....
