Fresh slaughtered hog ribs?

Has anyone every cooked (smoked) freshly slaughter hog ribs? A fellow workers' Dad slaughtered a hog last week and I smoked a slab of the ribs Saturday. They really were not good. Does the meat need to age at all? I made sausage and it was very good.

I don't know the answer to that. Maybe you are used to store bought?

There is a small packing plant not 5 miles from my house that also does retail. I can only get my butts from them on 'pig' days.

I've picked up ribs that were fresh that day and they seemed fine to me. Butts as well.

Shouldn't be a big difference. Unless you're used to enhanced ribs.
