After all this rain I decided to smoke some ribs instead of mow.
I purchased some bb's from Sam's last night. When I opened them up this morning I was greeted with the smell of tainted meat.
Rotten egg / Natural gas combo. I washed them off anticipating the smell to go away but it didn't happen. The smell was not as strong but it was still there.
This is the first time I have experienced this that I can think of. I was tempted to go ahead and smoke them since I was running behind but my "spidey senses" were saying otherwise.
I called Sam's and they gave me a no-hassle exchange except for the meat guy, in a round-about way, accussing me of not knowing the difference between tainted and un-tainted meat. But even he was a good sport about the exchange.
The new pack was much better but even it had a very faint smell that seemed to go away when I washed them off. Maybe I am just gunshy now.
On at 11. These pics are two hours into the cook. Wittdog inspired me to not use foil on this cook. I turned and sprayed with apple juice at the two hour mark.
