Last night I put the last of my reds and some silver bellies in the brine for a morning smoke. However, two hours before I was hoping to wake up a crash came from my kitchen. I found the refrig shelf had failed spilling my prized catch all over the kitchen floor. The fish had been in the brine for about 12 hours, I rinsed them as quickly as I could. Can I still use them for smoking and jarring, for human consumption that is, or is fido gonna have some great treats this year?
Need feedback asap. Thanks everyone.
