My father bought a hog and had it processed at the local meat locker. The hams and bacon were cured and smoked. They taste terrible. He wants me to re-smoke them. Is there anything else I could do to them to try to change the taste. I have not tried them.
I don't think they would use oak to build pallets. When I used to handle pallets and had to get rid of them when we had a truckload I beleve they used inferior soft wood. Check out this link.
