Sledneck - all I can say is LOL!!!!!
A off smell is normal for pork in cryovac packaging. Once you rinse the meat this smell should disappear.
Which brings up another point - make sure you rinse your meat good when you take it out of the cryovac, if you take it straight out of the pack and rub it down and smoke it, that is probably where your sourness is coming from.

Pregnant pigs?? that's a first for me
