That's a great price, just make sure they are NOT enhanced! Read the nutrional facts, if the sodium content is more than 100mg they're pumped with a solution. Or terms like "Tender and Juicy" or "Self Basting" are dead giveaways! If you slow smoke enhanced ribs they will taste like ham lollipops, pretty tasty indeed, but not what I'm looking for in a rib! The general public love them though!

They are the enhanced ribs - always tender is what they call them. Good enough for the in-laws

Funny Larry, Did a rib cater one time for a family and they all said " these don't taste like grandpas bacon on a stick " Guess grandpa would brine the ribs in the milk cooler for two days as I was told. Guess it's what you grew up with. I'd grab them if they were enhanced or not. After all, you can cook them for company. That know no better.

Great price. The only ribs Super Target peddles around these parts are Hormel and they are enhanced. They are great ribs. Enhanced ribs are mo betta than the other kind. That is why they enhance em.

If you like ham they are delicous! If you like ribs they are not so delicious! Depends on what flavor you're looking for! Now post some pic's of the cannonball big guy!!

I saw that was the price here. I have 6 racks in the freezer and don't need to buy any. Going back and look to see if they say enhanced when I pick up the chickens for tomorrow.

I dont eat that junk myself..smoked meat is bad for your health. I am a backslid raw vegan at heart. I know whut off the street Texas style table judges prefer and will ghuarantee they love pumped Hormels. I got a cute story which I have most likely tole before..us old folks get redundant. Back when we was doing some comp cooking I spent 2 years driving half way to Timbucktu to buy special unpumped ribs for comp purposes. During that time frame we never got a smell in the rib category. Had some pals who was kicking serious booty with Hormels. Caught some on sale at Super Target for .99 so I grabbed up about 8 or 9 racks totaling around 50 bucks and I chunked em in the freezer. By about the midpoint of the cooking season I had used up all the ribs and had stuck 800 bucks in prize money in the hip pocket based on the original 50 dollar investment. I love pumped Hormels. Kroger brand pumped ribs is at least as good if not mo betta. They calls em Moist n Tender or Silver Platter or similar. Tyson and John Morrell pumped ribs aint worth a caca. Just my dos centavos of course. In the cannonball pics you want me to wear my thong bathing suit? Like this old yankee pal from Illinois used to say when somebody passed a little flatulence, "I had druther hear a fatboy fart than a purty girl whistle." Never did quite understand whut he meant.
