So I bought 2 chuck roasts last Friday night with the intention of smoking them Saturday morning. Well that didn't happen and they have been in the fridge ever since and I forgot about them. They are still in the wrap from SAMS and the sell by date was the 22nd on the label. My question....Throw them in the crock pot? Or will they hold until Saturday morning until I can get them on the barrel (might even be able to do them tomorrow after work)? Throw em away (highly doubt this one hah)? They are still fairly red but one is starting to get the light brown tint to it. Any info is much appreciated!
Edit** Or throw them in the freezer ASAP? I read that they will definitely be fine 1-2 days after the sell by but just know about letting it go til Saturday ya know. I just usually don't keep meat longer that 2 days or so because I always buy specific for what I am going to cook at the time. Thanks!
