    holehogg, since the like button is not back yet, I'll just type like. Now I am almost afraid to eat almost everything.

    Much the same this side on occasions. If it smells ok we eat it, but then again we like to believe Africa is not for sissies.
    The pit has put a a different spin on food safety for me almost to the extent of monomania.

    I'm glad the ribs did not turn out to be Last Meal Ribs, as in the last meal you'd have before the barfing commenced. Good to hear that they were fine, jumbo7676 , and that they were delicious.

    Now that I am here reading all of this, I realize that it is amazing that I am still alive and have never had food poisoning or anything. I have some brisket that has been in the fridge for around 10 days, and I heated some up last night and made a pretty fantastic sandwich. I have also had pulled pork that I thawed out in the fridge that sat because I was called out of town or something. Come home, heat it up, put it on a bun...

    Good deal! 👍

    If they had been cooked and then vacuum sealed, I would have tossed them without question. But the fact that the ribs were pasteurized and then never unsealed, I thought as long as there was no funky odor that I'd go ahead and dig in. Just rubbed, heated in the oven to bring up the internal temp, then seared. They were soooo good.

    I personally think food safety should be Goal #1. and agree with those that say, when in doubt get rid of it. Especially if your body's immune system is re syncing per say. You likely have already made a decision by now. Our immune system can be a strong friend or it can be a horrible enemy against us if it gets into a loop cycle.

    I'm not sure anyone can say for sure. When in doubt, throw it out. Especially if you're still in a somewhat debilitated physical condition. Not worth the risk, IMO.

    Use your nose. If they still smell fresh when you open them they are fine.

    I ended up throwing out the pork and was very sad while doing it.

    The ribs have now been sitting in my fridge for 9 days. They were cooked 72 hours at 133 and went from sitting in a sous vide bath to an ice bath to the fridge all while still vacuum sealed. Are they ok to cook tonight since they were pasteurized and remained sealed or is 9 days too long regardless of the rest? This is the first night I've felt well enough to actually cook them, so it wasn't going to happen earlier. Would hate to toss them, but would hate to get sick again even more. Nine days in the fridge since being cooked just sounds too long to me, so I turn to the wise men and women of the Pit for guidance.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
