Re: Pork Butts & Stinky Butts

They only smell like that if they aren't fresh butts... I buy fresh butts and if I don't cook them within a day or two they smell like that.. It's just chemistry... Cook on bro....

Re: Pork Butts & Stinky Butts

I'm new to this whole smoking thing so I'm just going to spell out exactly what I have going on so that you guys might be able to give me the best advice on what to do with this butt.

I got a 2-pack of cryopack butts from Sam's last weekend. The first butt I immediately put in a brine for 24 hours then smoked it... very happy about my first attempt. The second butt I put in a large ziploc bag and left it in the fridge.

So, here it is 6 days later and I removed my second butt and it REEKS of sulfur. I've rinsed it with vinegar as some have suggested. I've trimmed off some of the grayish meat. And it still has a bit of the sulfuric/rotten egg smell.

I hate to throw out such a large cut of meat but I don't want food poisoning. Advice is greatly appreciated!

Re: Pork Butts & Stinky Butts

I don't treat my butts at all. Just rub 'em maybe the night before, then toss them on fat side up. Grey meat? From the sounds of it I wouldn't go near it.

Re: Pork Butts & Stinky Butts

I say trash it.

This may not be the popular thought but when I open a cryo of pork ribs or butts and they smell like sulphur, I rinse them in cold water and let them air for a couple of minutes. If they still smell then they don't get cooked.

Re: Pork Butts & Stinky Butts

Thanks guys. Really what I was looking for was someone else to say trash it 'cause I just didn't want to throw out such a large and potentially tasty piece of meat.

So long stinky butt.

Re: Pork Butts & Stinky Butts

Well if you sure it smelled like sulphur it was most likely ok. Throw it out in the rotten cheese smelling phase.
