Are they natural or "enhanced". The last pack of spares I bought by Smithfield were too salty to eat and I didn't even use a rub.

The "natural" ones are awesome, but their "enhanced" ones are aweful.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

I've soaked them for a couple hours in ice water but it still didn't help much. the natural ones are good though.

You cannot use "natural" in a sentence that contains "Smithfield".
That's just wrong on so many levels.
