Default Question about boiling ribs

Not what you think.

I made some extra ribs this weekend and vacuum sealed and froze them. I plan on taking them to a Scout camp and reheating. I do not know if I will have a grill to reheat and was planning on placing the bag in a pot of boiling water like pulled pork.

Anyone done this before with ribs, and how did they turn out? Should they be thawed first, and how long should I heat them?

That's the best way to reheat bbq that has been vacuum sealed. Keep an eye on the pouch and not let it melt. Generally doesn't, but I have had it happen.

AMEN!

Do not leave the water on "full boil".
Get it boiling then turn down the heat to a "high simmer" to avoid busting the bags.
Frozen or thawed is OK.
20-30 minutes should do it.

Good Eats!

Dangerous subject line!!
It's funny, I used to work at a restaurant that specialized in wings (they were really good) when I was working my way through university a few moons ago. Well, they did ribs too and used to boil them earlier in the day, they weren't the most popular item on the menu but would sell quite a bit. I figured the owner knew what he was doing so I started to boil them at home too, I later found out that this is of course a huge no-no.

I'm more concerned about how you're going to keep them. The scout camp I attended (as an adult) had no facilities in the individual camps to hold food. Scouts were absolutely forbidden to hold perishables between meals. any left over went back to the commissary. if your camp is like this and you violate the rules, how to you expect to convince the scouts to follow the rules? Of course every camp is operated differently and I suppose you've already made arrangements for storage. (and maybe you'll make the staff really happy on one of their late night forays into the camp cooler. )

Thursday night is the OA ceremony and parent night (no dinner provided), and that is when I will be arriving. Parents bring meals for the kids before heading to the ceremony. Being only about 90 minutes away, I'll just keep the ribs in the cooler and heat up when I get there with the troop supplies.

"Happy Campers" comes to mind.

I reheat all my BBQ in the vacuum sealed bags. I would highly recommend the bags designed for it. The others may not be safe. Ie, once heated they can release chemicals.

Seems strange to say but a chamber style vacuum sealer was one if my best BBQ investments.
