Default Bad tasting babybacks

Tasted like fish! They might be imported. Is this a rare taste? Think I'll go back to spares. I have 6 more BBs in the freezer bought at a different time and place. Hopefully they'll be better.

Tim, that was my first thought too. If so, we need a shovel

I know where they're not going...my pie hole. The new rub was good though. I cut the cayenne by half and added 1/4 Chipoltle, and 1/4 New Mexico chili powders. May have to cut 1/2 of the remaining cayenne for the wife.

Ty

Hopefully nothing in my rub. It on the butt still on the grates.

This is a real thought!
My Baby Girl put some vac-bagged Que I gave her in the freezer with a whole lot of Salmon (Phil knows "from where").
She said it tasted like--guess what--Salmon

Could have been her "hyper taste buds", or....????
Can not imagine flavors migrating like that, but maybe?

Don't know.

I have seen "flavor migration" in the frozen food compartment of a household refrigerator, when strong flavored food like fish was stored improperly wrapped along with other stuff-and of course it happens in the fridge sometimes. I have never seen or heard of it in a case where food was properly packaged
and stored in a deep freeze at low temps.

Ty, I can't explain the flavor migration, but have had the occasional "off tasting" bad rack of ribs. Don't sweat it too much, especially since the other racks of BB's that you have are from a different source. The others are bound to be better and hopefully devoid of the nautical mod.

I, too, have had an "off" package of ribs. It has made me a lot more picky in the meat I get. I try to stick with cryovacs at this point.

Hi Guys, new to posting here but been reading for a long time and you have helped me alot. I've been in the meat bussiness for along time and if the ribs were cryoed and were getting old but not quite "bad" yet according to the meat person, they take them out of the cryo and wrap them in smaller packages to try to get rid of them faster but they already have a off taste to them, i've had many complants about this at different places i've worked because they don't want to toss them and take the loss and most of the time they get away with it because the people will come back and buy more because they think they did somthing wrong to them. If you buy the ribs in cryo packages make sure the blood in the package doesn't have a milky look to it that means they have been around along time and either cryo or film wrapped it shouldn't have a sour smell, if it kinda smells off and after it airs out it or you rinse it off and it smells ok that is alright but not that sour smell you'll know it when you smell it.
I have had ribs beef and pork that had that almost fishy taste because of this. Sorry this was so long hope it helps.

I've had cryo'd ribs that I got from Smart & Final that had a sour smell when opened. One time it was so bad I threw them away, but other times I have rinsed them and they seemed to be ok. Didn't really taste bad. I don't know if they were bad or just starting to go bad. I try to only buy cryo's that don't have any air space in them.
