    Long story short...people bailed on our supper plans,so now I have 2 pork loins thawed and it's wifey and I.

    They thawed in the fridge,the only time they were not in the fridge was when I put the marinade on them,so they never got above fridge temp.

    Can I re-freeze one without fear of death ?

    They'll be fine. The refreezing might mess with the texture ( ice crystals, lots of little cuts, yadda yadda) but if they have stayed under 40 degrees your good.

    I'd worry that my fingers would stick to the metal...

    Re-Freezing won't kill you, but it will suck the taste out of it.
    Just eat them tomorrow.
    Leftovers for a couple of days won't hurt you.

    Never thought about the crystal lattice in a pork loin before .

    LMAO at the Joe Walsh signature. I've seen that interview.
    I think Lemmy felt the same way about Ace of Spades.

    Vacuum pack them and you won't know the difference. I would season or marinate them first then vacuum pack, but I lost "Chopped" 1 month ago against Siblings and Spouses which we do twice a year so I could be wrong.:p

    I can't stand reheated pork loin. Ditto for chicken.

    Brine it in Tender Quick with a little liquid smoke. That's Canadian bacon, or a reasonable facsimile.

    Well,first one is done and consumed,delicious if I may say so myself, second is back in the freezer.

    We'll see how that turns out at a later date .

    Now for a scotch .

    Nope, something about pork loin and chicken unless it's in a soup or stew just tastes ****ed up to me when reheated.

    I smoke them first, then freeze. TASTY!
    Have also smoked chicken, salmon, beef, veggies, nuts, salt, and soon..... cheese.
    It's all good.

    i don't freeze any meats cooked or un cooked. to me its just dries them out and makes them too chewy.
    some things are made to be eaten fresh. now I will refrigerate any left overs but for no more then 2 days. after that its dog food.

    do what you want, but then again my relatives would marinate chicken and pork together in adobo under the sink for two weeks so what the heck
