Re-freeze meat?

We BBQed this last weekend. I have some left over pork ribs which were seasoned with dry rub. They are still in the refrig because we didn't need to cook them since we had enough ribs, chicken pork chops and veggies in our tummies.

My question is:
Can I re-freeze these pork ribs that have dry rub on them? Or must I cook them up. I have enough leftovers for the week already.

Assuming they aere properly refrigerated while thawed, you can refreeze with some minor degradation in the texture of the meat. That's not as big a problem with ribs as with a steak.
