Saturday Rib Roast delayed - How long do I have?

4.44 lb Rib roast bought on Thursday last week.  Scheduled virgin cook Satuday but got delayed helping a friend with bathroom reno.  Label says sell by 2-3-2012.  Have it stored in the back coolest part of fridge.  Really hate to put it in freezer.  Hoping to get it cooked Tuesday evening but who knows what will come up.  How long can it hold on?

BTW hoping to go reverse sear.  Whats the best temp?  Thanks

    I wouldn't be worried about it, if your fridge is working properly you will be fine.

    Your fine, the sell by date is just "peak of freshness". A few days will not be any noticeable difference. Or uncover it and let it sit for 21 days, bam dry aged rib roast

    Was wondering about the dry aged thing but have a hard time imaging what it would look like after 21 days.  Seems like one of those cooking shows Alton or cooks illustrated maybe mentioned you could wrap it in cheese cloth and put in the back.  Hoping to get it cooked tomorrow. 

    Anyone rub the night before?
