Keeping Grilled Ribs Fresh in the Fridge

If properly stored, cooked ribs will keep for 3-4 days in the refrigerator.
To maximize the shelf life of cooked ribs, cool them quickly before storing in covered airtight containers or wrap tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic wrap.

How to Reheat Grilled Ribs without Losing Flavour

To reheat ribs, preheat your oven to 190 °C (375 °F). Place the ribs on an aluminum-foil lined baking pan, cover it with another piece of foil, and bake for 20-30 minutes until heated through.
Alternatively, use a slow cooker to achieve a more tender texture after reheating.
