Another "is it safe" thread

I pulled a rack of BB ribs out of the freezer Sunday and threw them in the fridge with plans to smoke them Tuesday.  Well Monday night I came down with the crud/ flu.  I have been in bed until now.  I pulled myself up to watch basketball, thinking I sould have just stayed in bed.  But that's when I realized they were in there.  I don't see anyway to do them tomorrow.  So by Friday should I just take the safe rout (since my immune system is alreay depleted)?

    I would be more than happy with those ribs if you shipped them to me today in a styrofoam cooler and didn’t get them till Monday next week.

    See if they smell like rotten eggs.  If not youre good

    Also note that for ribs/brisket this is more of a flavor issue than a "kill someone" issue, since you are cooking them to past well done (> 180F), and killing any frisky bugs.

    This is more of an issue for stuff that you cook less.

    See if they smell like rotten eggs.  If not youre good
    Slimy/rotten eggs probably won't kill you, but I would toss them if this were the case (which it won't be after 5 days in the fridge)

    They are fine no matter what but if they are in cryo vac you could roll a month or more. 
    If they are cryo'ed, if you leave them for another 25 days, you can call them "1 months wet aged".

    Just don't have romaine with them and you'll be fine.

    Yes, it’s safe. It’s very safe. It’s so safe you wouldn’t believe it!!!  No, it’s not safe. It’s very dangerous. Be careful.
