Tips for Great Ribs

Start ribs ahead if time does not permit tenderizing and cooking ribs on the same day. Cook the ribs until they are tender, about 1 hour, then refrigerate. The next day, brush the ribs with sauce and bake until heated through, basting with sauce as desired.

Hold ribs until serving time or transport hot cooked ribs to a party by placing them in heavy-duty foil and then in a brown paper bag. The ribs can stand this way for up to 1 hour.
