Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Ribs In Cryo, in fridge..past expiration date

Ok so this is more of a generic food safety thread.  I bought some Spares on Saturday, today i was checking them out and realized that the sticker says "use or freeze by 7/1/13."  I dont have any freezer space, would it be ok to leave in the fridge until 7/4? Im cooking them up for the 4th of July. I would rather keep them and assume i dont get sick vs. having to take them back and exchange them.

thoughts?

    I would keep them. The date on the package is a guideline for sale, typically not the cook by deadline. I would also let my nose be the judge, but only after you remove it from the cryo pack and rinse it. Pork manufacturers have been working for a good while on trying to minimize the initial smell that is a factor of the packaging not the meat.

    I bet they're OK, but you might want to make sure your life insurance and will, etc are all up to date.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    "dudes" should be "dude's"  - it's a contraction
