Rib?
 
Do you usually serve Spares or babybacks at a catering gig? Do you offer a choice?

Also I have a small drop off gig for Saturday. They may not be eating right away. The client asked me about warming the pork and ribs back up. Any suggestions on this. Usually the food is eaten right away. Never had to warm it back up.

The food will be in foil pans.

Thanks

Spares are cheaper = more money for you.
Baby Backs are what more people think of as ribs. If you give them both, the majority will eat the BBQ Backs.
Personally I would do Baby Backs.

Have em warm it up in the oven at 250. spray a bit of apple juice on it. to moisten it up.

BBS and Mista answered a million questions I had. CRocke is a fountain of knowlege as well.
I hope you do well at this one bro.

I have Food Saver bagged a few drop offs at the Holidays
Kyle gave our customers racks of Ribs for Christmas
Yea in a Foil Pan add a lil Apple Juice and warm it in the oven

I usually have St Luis Cut on catering
and use the Rib Tips for those Guys that
always come around before your ready to serve

have them buy chaffing trays they sell the cheap ones for around $12- 15 bucks:-D

We never use BB for catering. We offer them but seldom sell them. Once they see the st louis style they are hooked.
Wrap them in foil, low oven 180-200 until ready to eat.

For the ribs I like them to warm them in a 350* oven for 25-30 minutes. I should note that I put no sauce on them for a drop off like this. I would also say that I normally pull the ribs early so that they are slightly under done (tenderness wise). This allows the re-heat to actually finish off the cooking...

I normally go with the cryo-suck approach (2 pound bags) as well.. My customers like it because they can warm what they need and freeze the rest...

If you have to use the foil pans I agree, spray, cover, and warm at 250*...

I offer both, but usually they want BB's... It's a Chicago thing I think... I do have a couple of customers that like the St. Louis cut because I offer both the ribs and tips for $25 rather than $18 for just the ribs.... If they want BB's, its $20 a slab...

Thanks for all the help, Ended up reheateing everything on the grill. They loved it. This was my most nerve racking gig. Even though it was only supposed to be 10 people it turned into 22 which I only found out that morning.

I have done small gigs before but this could lead into some rather large gigs. I really needed to impress these clients. I did get a call today from one of the people there about doing a 30 person gig in two weeks.

I also got two new clients that want me to do there contracting work. So all in all it turned out rather well.

Thanks
