Was planning on cooking some baby backs yesterday. Went to the store and got two racks on Saturday. Sunday morning I opened them up and pulled the membrane and applied and good covering of rub. The plan was to light the Egg at 11ish and put the ribs on at noon for a 4-5 hour cook (until done). Well no - went to a park with the kids to ride their bikes and ended up staying there for longer than expected. Did not get home until 2 so it was a waste of a good cooking day. Ended up having spaghetti and meatballs (on the stove). The ribs sat all day uncovered in the fridge with the rub on them, Last night I put the ribs in a food saver bag and froze them. Will they be OK or should I chuck them out? My thoughts are they will be dried out or spoiled from sitting for 14 hours uncovered in the fridge.
The way it looks I will not be using the Egg for months. Kids baseball is starting shortly (One kid starts at 10:30 AM and one starts at 2:30 PM). The whole day will be shot until the end of June. Then hockey on Sundays for one of the kids. Not counting my normal work week where I get home too late to use the Egg as well. maybe I should sell it - I was pissed off that I could not use it yesterday. This is the new trend for me I guess.
