I took 3 racks of beef back ribs out of the freezer last night to thaw. I put them in cold water in the sink. I fell asleep for longer than I intended, and by the time I woke up, I had 3 racks of garbage. They were not even cool, and the water was just barely cooler than room temp. I ended up running to the store and buying 3 racks of pork baby back ribs, which was the only thing they had that wasn't frozen. I am embarrassed to say how much I paid for that mistake. Hopefully they turn out really tasty, so I won't feel quite so bad. I also have a Boston Butt, some brined chicken, macaroni and cheese (no-boil recipe found here) and Dutch's Wicked Baked Beans going. I am figuring out pretty quickly that the 3 racks that came with my smoker are not nearly enough.
