I took 2 sets of side ribs from the freezer yesterday( frozen solid) @ noon and put them in the sink downstairs and forgot all about them. This morning at 8:00 I find they are totally thawed and at room temp. I know this quest has been asked a hundred times before, but it's a first for me. What do ya think? Should I trash 'em?

I would have opened them and smelled them before I deep-sixed them.

Was your "some-timers" acting up? Shocked Laughing Wink

When had you planned on cooking them?
Were they in cold water in the sink? That speeds up the thawing time,
but might have saved them as compared to just laying in an empty sink.

I'm with BigOrson and his suggestion.

Thank you Big Orson and MacEggs for your timely response and advice. I left them in the sink in the plastic bags they came in, no water. Ya they smell ok, but the thing is they're not the greatest ribs ever. They're the second batch of the el cheapo ribs I posted about a week or so back. Fer $13 it ain't worth the risk. Thanks again.

You should thaw meat in a fridge. Don't leave it out to thaw.

When in doubt, throw it out - that or drown it in boiling vinegar, and place in well sterilized bottles...oh wait, wrong thread Embarassed

I have taken stuff from the freezer and dropped it in water and put the whole thing in the fridge. That way, it thaws faster, but is safer assuming the fridge and the frozen product can get the water temp to fridge temps in a reasonable amount of time.
