I thought I would give these ribs a try........and I was disappointed.

 Well I saw these and since they already come with the rub on them I thought it would be worth a try.  The price was right too.  Do yourself a favor and never buy these. They just were not hat good.  Plus they left the skin on the back of the ribs.

They look good. What was wrong with them?

They just didn't taste very good.  I would say a combination of the rub they use and the quality of the ribs.  Plus I can't stand when the skin is left on the back of the rack.  I considered taking it off but it would have been a task and I still don' t think it would have helped the flavor much.

Wonder if the application of the rub being on there too long, in addition to the cryopack had anything to do with the flavor? 33.gif

 

Oh well, thanks for letting us know, and at least ya tried 'em!

Yeah... I have never been happy with any meat that is cryopacked with a rub or marinade already on it. They all seem to be way over seasoned, usually salty, and just plain not worth it. Sorry you got bit, but thanks for letting the rest of us know!

My other half bought a similar product about a year ago.  Even she took a couple of bites and threw the rest away.

 

It made my process of educating her much easier!  biggrin.gif

 

Good luck and good smoking.

A shame, Swift is a good quality packer.

Thanks for the heads up!

Those are meant for consumers who haven't found the Nirvana of SMF!

IMHO I like these ribs for the price ... usually under $10 a rack in my aera . Hint : i do not just throw them on , i always remove the membrane and use my own rub the night before . 3-2-1 or 2-2-1 method .drool.gif

If price is cheap . Wash them off and remove the membrane and put your own rub on
