What is the Best Way to Defrost Ribs in 12 hours?
I wanna smoke some baby backs tomorrow morning but they are completely frozen. They are from Sam's in a nice cryovac but I was wondering if any of the brethren had any tips on how to un-freeze my ribs by the morning?
I was thinking of putting it in a cold bath for 30 minutes and then into the fridge over night but I dont know if that would work.
Also part 2 of the question, if I defrost the ribs can I take 1 rack and smoke it and leave another rack in the fridge for a later day? If so how long can it stay in the fridge before I need to use it? Also is it possible to freeze the extra rack after being defrosted?
