    If it doesn't smell funky, you're fine. You can always nibble a little and wait. Yes, I;'m serious

    Last time I tossed food was 8 lbs of cooked pulled pork. Under normal circumstances I would have kept it, but I had just gotten over a virus the week before and wasn't willing to take any chances at all.

    I cooked it last night. Actually cooked it before posting to get that done as soon as possible. Now, instead of a raw chicken in my fridge, I have a cooked spatchcocked chicken waiting for me to decide if I should eat it or not.

    I use the nose test everytime I get some milk. In college I didn't, and paid later...abundantly.

    I always go by the nose test with chicken. Even store bought I have left it for almost a week and it was fine. But do what you think is best for you. Some people are more squeamish than others. I grew up with my mom butcher chickens in the backyard so I am sensitive to that awful smell of dead chickens and won't keep a bad bag/

    Yeah, gut feeling. I've tossed food that more than likely was fine, but gut feeling that made me feel better to go with something else.

    How do you follow that?

    Id eat that. Wouldn’t hesitate to toss it though if I was feeling squeamish.

    If you cook it nice and hot (350+), likely fine. Even plant-processed chicken held at room temp for hours and hours didn't have significant Log increases on whole birds immediately after chilling. Parts would probably be another story. I would also expect coming from a farm you would have less Campy contamination since that stuff likes to spread like a big fat lie when them chickens are loaded on trucks. Problem with store bought chicken is you don't know how often time/temp abuse took place before it made it to your kitchen, like many things, and thus we opt to err on the side of caution since the downside is so low and the upside is just a meal that can be replaced, unlike human life.
