Default "Porky", Gamey", "Disgusting" Flavor

I had some pork at a restaurant the other day that was just really bad. It had this strong "porky" flavor. I have noticed that flavor several times in pork but this was the worst.

What causes it? Is it the pork? It is the age of the pork? Is it the cooking method? How can it be avoided?

I have noticed that to but whats odd is i like the pork flavor more than the smoke. i like to taste the meat. I noticed your title said gamey, now thats a flavor i am not found of. i dont mind smoked food from an electric smoker at all because then there is no risk of odd flavors from charcoal or bad wood. Back to my original statement of noticing the to porky of a flavor. Maybe age or even a salt solution caused it. i have not had pulled pork for about 7 months due to this same issue. I lost my appetite after i had some odd tasting pulled pork. i even tried to smoke some in November but just reminded me of the bad stuff and i just couldnt eat it..

Maybe you meant "ham like"? that would be from the salt in the rub staying on for more than 24 hours. just my 0.02

If you meant ham like flavor then it could have been a enhanced pork product. A lot of packers are enhancing their products with a salt solution that actually cures the meat to a point, giving the end result a ham flavor. If you are talking about a gassy rotten smell then it's time to throw it out. Many packers inject CO2 into the package before vac sealing, and it gives a gassy odor. I usually return the meat to the store when I get one like that.

I think I know what he means.
That really strong 'pork' pork flavor comes from a boar. Maybe.

Why can't they just make pork taste more like beef?

Or Chicken???

My understanding is it is caused by "older" pork, not neccessarily bad but pork that is nearing the end of it's shelf life.. My MIL did an oven roast once for Christmas that was the nastiest smelling and tasting thing you could imagine. just sayin'
