About us

The Packanack Lake BBQ Club is a group of like minded people residing in the Packanack Lake Section of Wayne, NJ who have a passion for BBQ.

Our purpose is to “celebrate the art of American BBQ” with three goals in mind:

1. Learn to cook and consume great BBQ

2. Enjoy our favorite beverages

3. Have fun and take it low ‘n slow

The Club has monthly meetings where the grill is always fired up and the group discusses recipes, community fundraisers, BBQ events, competitions and whatever else comes up.

REHEATING










REHEATING INSTRUCTION

RIBS

Take ribs out of the refrigerator 1 hr prior to heating to get the meat closer to room temperature. Preheat your oven to 275. Open up the foil and add some liquid around the rack of ribs (ie. apple juice, beer, or cola). If the foil is torn or has holes, replace. After adding the liquid around the rack, loosely close the foil around the ribs and place in 275 degree oven for 30 min. While that's in the oven, heat up some of your favorite BBQ sauce and paint the finished ribs with it, if desired. Place ribs bone side up on a cutting board and slice in between bones (Note: Bones may turn on a diagonal. Adjust you knife position accordingly or it may be difficult to slice).

Place the Pork in an oven safe container (or the supplied foil pan if you ordered 5+ lbs). Use two forks and loosen the pork. Add apple juice or beer to the pan to allow the pork to steam (approx 2oz per lb of meat). Add some of your favorite BBQ sauce, if desired. Cover your oven safe container loosely with foil and reheat for 1 hr or when the meat reaches 155-160 degrees. Meat will already be cooked and only needing to be reheated.
