Would you eat this?

Recommended Posts

I have a large (expensive) beef brisket that has a sell/freeze by date of 11/21.  I mistakenly read the date as 11/27 and pulled it out today and noticed the difference. 

It's still in the original vacuum packaging and my fridge temp is a consistent 37 degrees. I would be cooking this in a low oven--250 degrees.

It might smell funky when you open it, but if it still has a horribly strong smell after 30 second or so, then I would think twice. 


Yes!  I haven’t noticed it with brisket, but for whatever reason vacuum packed pork butt can smell suuuper funky at opening, but the smell dissipates fairly fast.
