He said he'd probably toss it. I hope he really did.

Dodgefan, as Bear said get it above 140*f,then if you have to leave get a neighbor to watch it and offer him some chow for the favor. Gas is a bad thing, as is all fire that is unattended.th_violent5.gif

Hope this helps and...

The smell that you have is common in cryovac meat, however it should not be over powering. It sounds like you have a very gassy piece of meat and should return it to the store where you purchased it. It has been my experience that you can not get rid of the smell on matter what you do. The meat itself will probably not hurt you but the smell will stay no matter what you do.I don't think it would be a pleasant first smoke.

I don't like to rain on a Mopar Man, but if the meat is bad in a smoker it will be bad in a crock-pot.

 

Hopefully you will know it's bad before you eat it, instead of later, or better still I hope it is good.

 

I hate to go by hope, when it comes to this type of thing.
