  1. I smoked some BB ribs over the weekend (yeah, I know -- no pics, didn't happen). [​IMG]

    Anyway, I took some of the leftovers to work today, but forgot to put the rest of them back in the fridge. [​IMG]

    They sat out on the counter all day -- should I toss them?

    Unfortunately yes.. I definitely would toss them. Such a shame but they are not worth getting sick over.
  4. Close to 9 hours @ room temp... [​IMG]

    No doubt in my mind throw it out as Jeff said its not worth taking a chance

    Oh yea if they were out for 9 hours you won't want to eat them. If was only for 2-4 hours you could maybe pull it off depending on the temps but 9 no way. Like Jeff said it's better to be safe than have someone get sick. I guess it just gives you another reason so smoke more [​IMG]. But it does hurt the check book when you have to waste meat.
