I was wondering if someone could give some advice. about seven days ago i purchased a brisket with the intention of making corned beef. ive had it brining for seven days now in the fridge. it was stored in a pot with cling wrap over the top. i pulled it out tonight to clean and give a good rub however the wife thinks it may be spoiled due to the duration it was stored. i was hoping to smoke it tomorrow but now my wife has me worried. any advice?
