I never buy pork from Walmart, it's all "Enchanced".

This is true but I just couldn't pass this cheap deal up.

For $4 for a rack of ribs I would be willing to eat enhanced ribs. :loco:

Was always told Wal-Mart beef contains formaldehyde. Beef is always so bright red.

You would have been silly not to purchase it for that price.

It may be enhanced, but so what, it;s still going to taste good. Think of it as brined meat.


GREAT SCORE......

Never tried the ribs, but I cook Smithfield butts all the time, they are great and very cost effective. Don't know about the "enhanced", nothing on the packaging on the butts to give an indication one way or the other.The ones I get are packaged different and look a little larger, 2 per cyrovac, average 7#-8# each, maybe they have different products for different customer bases?

Learned that lesson a long time ago. Just make sure you go a little lighter on your rub

Shoulders about 4-6lbs each, up to about 12% enhanced.

Yea I did the "classic" salt ONLY rub fat cap down, no wrap and smoked with hickoryl, apple and oak chips. They turned out pretty tasty.

If you notice their lights on the meat are tinted pink so that adds color to their meat. However this wouldn't even be relevant to this post because those ribs are prepackaged by smithfield not walmart. I don't like walmarts packaged meat such as ground beef because it seems very watery and tough. But I will get ribs or chicken that isn't packaged there if it is on sale.

I'm not an enhanced meat guy, but I'd have done the same thing :wink:

SNOBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice score. You may notice a modicum of difference, but it will be slight. This difference in starting product can not make a bad cook good or a good cook bad.

Actually one of the Smithfields baby backs stated that it was all natural with no enhanced brine but everything else was
