I think this is the right place to post this so here goes. I typically read a lot of success stories and I am in no way trying to brag but I have had quite a few myself and can say a lot of them came from advice here. I thought it might be fun to hear about your biggest epic failure. Ones where you couldn't stand the taste, looked awful, dog wouldn't eat it type things.
My biggest failure to date would have to be when I found a 12 lb pork loin on sale so I snatched it up. I cut a 3 lb chunk off to put in the crockpot to make parmesan honey loin. I called the neighbors and told them I was gonna smoke a 9 lb loin if they wanted to eat so they made up hash brown casserole, corn, fries and some other veg and we invited some folks over. So it was time to prep the meat...here is where things went bad. I had recently had some pork butts injected with Chris Lilley's comp injection so I thought what the heck, I will try it here. My brother who very successfully does BBQ competitions with his buddy told me it would be a bad idea but I didn't listen. Apparently the salt content did not react well with the meat. The Worcestershire sauce in the injection put nasty looking black streaks through the meat. It was so tough that when it was sliced about 3/8" thin, you could not pull it apart by hand, you had to use a knife and even then it was a chore...not to mention it tasted terrible. So with a crowd of hungry folks, I made the decision to dump that 9# turd in the trash can and went and bought a bunch of brats and hotdogs that saved the day. It was a disaster!
