    Rib Question

    I bought six racks of baby back ribs from the butcher today. I am going to teach my niece to smoke these on Labor Day. They are cryovac sealed. I plan to keep in the refrig until the cook. Any reason I should consider freezing for a few days first?

            Not unless they're already past the sell-by date.

              Are you going to do them in your Chubby? Sounds soooo good. I have a few racks in my freezer that need smoking.

                The following shows common time guidelines for a few meats held in a cryovac bag. However, I have gone as long as two months while wet aging prime rib with no ill effects:


                "As a general rule here are some guidelines as to how long meat can last in a cryovac bag, under ideal refrigerated conditions: Beef – approx 4 weeks from date packed. Lamb – approx 14 days from date packed. Pork – approx 10 days from date packed."

                The reason to freeze the Baby Backs would be the thaw them out.
                To freeze I would not.
                Sounds like a lucky Niece, with a great Uncle jlazar
                Happy grilling to you and an age-appropriate beverage.

                The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!
