Help! Power went out midway through cooking ribs!!

I had some wonderfully rubbed ribs cooking and the power is out.
Do I throw them out? Tbrow them in the freezer n try again when we have power???

Is it dangerous to try n freeze and recook partially cooked meats??
I feel like it is, but I was so excited for ribs its real hard to throw them out :(!!!!

If you can get them down to 70°F within two hours, and down to 41°F within two more hours, they will be fine and you can continue cooking them later. I would put them in a large plastic bag (maybe two, to make sure it won't leak) and put that in a large pan filled with ice water. Or outside, in Niagara Falls Add more ice as needed. This is based on the FDA's food safety rules for restaurants. Hope this helps.
