Can you help with a question? I bought a couple racks of spare ribs last Thursday. They were sold as 'fresh, never frozen.' I intended on smoking them yesterday, but I wasn't able to. How long do ribs keep in the refrigerator? There's no expiration or 'use by' date on the pkg label. Should I freeze them, or can I keep them in the refrigerator until next Saturday? They are just wrapped in a plastic bag, not the thick cryo-vac plastic.
