Here is a tidbit from the news on why you don't want a smoke ring!
A woman reportedly called 911 to complain that she was served "pink" meat at a North Carolina barbecue restaurant.
She must be from California. I'm afraid to fart in my own truck in case it offends the driver next to me.Whats bad is some people dont recognize their own ignorance and continues to press on with it. And the article states she is considering a law suit?!?!?!? So we may get to see more documentation of this fine ladies ignorance.
I'm not around enough turkey hunters any more, but wild turkeys always had darker meat than domestic birds, but quite often dark meat is used in a soup or stew. One year I did buy a fresh 'free range' bird from one of the specialty markets, and they specifically mentioned the color to expect from the dark meat.One of the two turkeys that was brought to our TG potluck was a cured and smoked bird. The dark meat was very red. People were avoiding it. This thread popped into my head. I didn't bother explaining. More for me!
