Smithfield Extra Tender Ribs and Competition

Postby allenayres » Thu Jul 12, 2018 2:20 pm

Have any of you used these in competition?

I ordered some from an online meat store and didn't realize "extra tender" means they've added some phosphates, etc already. I have a couple of competitions coming up over the next 3 weeks and am not sure if I should use these or go back to the HEB all-naturals.

I've cooked a few racks.. some were hammy tasting, some were not. YMMV type of thing?

Thank you - so if using for competition they aren't injecting them? I planned to inject my next set of home-cooked ribs to see if it seemed worth the time for competition.
