Hogpaw· Fishin' 4 Crappie
I pulled a brisket out of the freezer yesterday and thawed it for smoking today. I seasoned it and put it on the smoker early. My said she didn't know we had a brisket. I went back and checked the package to see about the date. It was June 2004. It was already smoked wrapped up and cooking so I left it on to finish. How do I know if it is good?
- The meat was vacuum sealed in a heavy plastic package.
- I smelled the meat when I pulled it out (just a habit) and it smelled fine.
- No freezer burn.
