Default Rub then freeze: any reason not to?

Brethren,

I recently picked up two MASSIVE racks of baby back ribs. Realistically, I'm only gonna need one tonight. I figured I'd put the other in the freezer. But while I'm rubbing down the first, I might as well rub the second, right? Or is there a reason not to? Will it not freeze well?

Thanks!

If your rub has a lot of salt in it the salt can cure the meat if left on for a long time.

In other words, it's not advised unless you want some BB Ham Ribs.

Sometimes I forget that chemical processes can still keep occurring even in the freezer and that it's not a time-suspension device...

Most rubs are fairly heavy on salt. I do my own and cut way back, but even then something rubbed and left over-night starts down the hammy/cured path. I'm thinking frozen... Not good.

Yeah good idea. I'm using my own rib which is fairly salty.

Maybe I'll just invite over some more people... or have more leftovers!!

All true, but also when salt mixes with the liquids pulled from the cells of the meat and then re-absorbed, it will also lowers the temperature at which the meat will freeze at.

You can also cook the extras at 3/4 of the way done, quickly chill then vac-seal and freeze. Although they are not as good as fresh cook, they can still be an outstanding dinner. Just thaw and finish on a hot grill...

I ended up freezing half and inviting one more friend over. Looking at them closely, they are MASSIVE and a whole rack should be more than enough for us!

I think that is most of us that share that same appetite... I even steal a rib or two from my wife's plate most times.
