I planned to smoke my brisket on Tuesday of this week in my Bradley Smoker so I purchased the brisket Monday evening, prepared the rub and covered the briskets in rub and then put them in zip lock bags and then put them in the refrigerator.
Unfortunately I had to leave town and so the briskets are still covered in the rub in my refrigerator.
I will be home tomorrow and was wondering if the briskets would still be ok to smoke this weekend after sitting covered in rub in my refrigerator since Monday evening.
Not sure how the rub will affect them after being left in my refrigerator for several days or if I should just toss them out and get a fresh brisket although I sure hate to waste the meat but do not want to make anyone sick if they should not be eaten.
Any thoughts as to whether the brisket is still ok to smoke after approximately 4 days covered in rub in my refrigerator?
I appreciate any input.
