    1. Sheila says:

      can you pre-cook ribs in oven and glaze next day??

      • MC says:

        Yes, you could pre-cook the ribs in the oven one day and then glaze and grill the following day. It’s best to allow the ribs to come back to room temperature (after removing them from refrigeration) before adding the glaze and putting on the grill to heat through.
