Hello,

I put a 15lb brisket in the bag 15 days ago. I put it on a rack but realized I used the wrong fridge, I used a small bar fridge with out a fan. I opened the fridge yesterday and it was very firm but smells not good. Debating on opening it up and cutting off the outside. Is this possible or is it completely ruined at this point?

Thanks,

Joel

Ohhh, this doesn't sound good at all, Joel. Most likely your nose has already warned you your meat is ruined.

I was afraid of that, shoot. A spendy mistake. Well I'm 1 for 2. Can't win them all I guess.

Hello Ron,

Sooo, I may have made a mistake in not checking this out myself but listening to my wife's comments. I actually went and took it out last night and there was a smell but it was like rotten more earthy, no mold, and the bag is still attached on the meat side very well, but is starting to loosen on the fat side. Thinking of riding it out a bit longer to see how it progresses. I wanted to go 45 days. Any other advice on how to know if I should stay the course.

Well, Sir - it's your meat so your call! As for it coming loosen from the fat side that is not unusual.
