    Besides low temps in your meat droppinf the temp of the smoker, it will also cause smoke solids (creosote, etc) to condense on your meat rendering a very bad flavor.

    Never put cold meat in your smoker, never put meat in a smoker that is not up to temp.
    I had the meat out of the ice box about an hour before I went to the smoker. I see now that the temp was too low front the start but the smell was sour and the meat was very red and mushy.
    I'm just gonna stay away from Wmart from now on.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.
    Is it wrong to want a beer at 6 am when I fire up the smoker?

My wife thought they were fine at first but when she broke into her half she got the same smell and flavor. I did everything with this rack the same as I always do.

    If the meat was bad from the store, I think I would have noticed a sour smell or color or something right? Was a bad deal, lost the ribs, time, coal, ect. Worst of all I RELY WANTED SOME GOOD RIBS!!!

    Any ideas????

    One tip I can give you bro, Go to a butcher next time around OK?

    You will not loose anything again, Or go to Sam's if you don't have a butcher.

    I'm sorry you lost so much!
    I didn't claw my way up the food chain just to eat vegetables
