I grew up on ribs, loved them. My dad actually owned a BBQ restaurant while I was growing up so BBQ was never in short supply. But over the last few years I literally cannot stomach the taste or smell of pork. I've tried different brands, different types of wood, but it just makes me want to gag.

Pork loins, chops, ribs, butts, etc. I've even gotten to the point where I can't eat those premade sausage biscuits and I used to snack on those daily.

Only thing I can stomach is ham and jimmy dean sausage that isn't precooked.

What the heck changed? Has anyone else noticed how rank most pork taste/smells nowadays?

Sorry....not me.

Bring on the butts, ribs, chops, loins, and hams. :-D

Sad to hear. On the contrary, now I prefer pork over beef and have upped my consumption of pork significantly.

Yes, maybe your smeller is broke.

Here's the true indicator:

What about bacon?

I still love pork but I overdosed on chicken McNuggets 30 years ago and haven't eaten one since. And then there was kamikazes...Lost my taste for those after about a dozen of them one New Year's Eve. If you don't love bacon anymore, you should get to the closest emergency room.

I've experienced a similar problem. I still like pork but sometimes I get tired of it.
I'll butcher a pig, make bacon, sausage, eat the ribs and tenderloins first, then have to finish the rest of the pig meat before I can justify butchering another animal.
I get tired of eating pork so I have to get creative... injections, rubs, slathers, marinades... etc..
It's ok to take a break from eating pork every so often. imo :-D

I agree, Jeanie. Sometimes I tend to binge on certain meats and burn out on them.

I try to mix things up now.

I find myself eating more pork and less beef. Burgers if I get the good stuff, otherwise we make stews with it.

Pork today is different from pork of times past. Think 'lean' pork versus 'fat back' of times past.

Beef is that way too. Whenever I see yellow fat, I know it's not going to be a steller meal. I'm not so much about 'free range' but, high pressure feedlot beef isn't what I grew up with.

As fat became a heart evil, chicken, pork and, beef lost a lot of flavor. 90/10 ground beef isn't a whole lot better than Tofu in my book.

Kamikazes, Southern Comfort and Tequila are a no no. Too much muscle memory. Even the smell is enough.

I almost killed my taste for brisket. Was cooking one nearly every weekend for a couple years for myself and several for others. Had to lay off for several months because I was afraid they would deport me from Texas. It started to turn my stomach.

I love beef ribs but I only eat them about three times a year so I don't get sick of them. :sick:

Yeah, me too. I hate pork so much that every time I cook it I have to eat a whole bunch of it immediately just to get it out of my sight! Tough work.

I agree to a point that people in general are starting to see that 'fat equals flavor'. However, people still obsess over false health claims.

My sister will not buy anything that isn't 'low fat' so that means 90/10 hamburger that might as well be Tofu. My mother buys the leanest pork chops and steaks she can find at the grocery store and they taste very lackluster and test my dental work. Pork sausage should sizzle in the skillet for breakfast, unless you are at my mother's house where a grease-free sausage patty is the goal. :roll:

So yes, some trendy places and people want meat with real flavor but, most people are still stuck with the 'heart healthy' flavorless meat they think is the solution to their clogged arteries, double chins, and love handles.

Some people can develop a reaction to a protein in pork.

I've got a coworker that developed an allergy to pork. It came about when she was in her 30's. Now she gets anaphylactic, if she ingests ANY pork products.

It happens sometimes. Eat to much of a good thing and spoil your appetite. Got to get some variety in your cooking to prevent being burnt out. May I suggest lamb ribs. Trim the fat off as it turns chewy so get the thick fat off. Rub like pork ribs and treat it similar.

Wow! sorry to hear this, maybe this issue with pork will pass once you are away from it for awhile.
