Default Tripe - not so bad.

Bought some maybe 3 months ago or so. Everyone complained about the smell so I was nervous to thaw it. I was expecting to smell decomposing carcasses.

Not so bad. Just smells like a barn. My boys lived it too!

I agree. Smells like silage. Like the cow barn. Sweet smell to me.

Was this whole fresh pieces or ground frozen chunks?

I get mine fresh from the Butcher in one 20 lb piece. Unrinsed and the smell is horrific!
I have tried the frozen ground blocks and canned in the past, the smell from those is not nearly as strong or offensive.

This was whole and cut into rather large rectangles.

Mrs. P, I got it from Hare Today online.

I LOVE the smell of tripe! Reminds me of a horse or cow barn on a hot summer day.

well have a look at the tripe I bought, took me a while too to take the two I bought out of the freezer but I did, thawed them outside and just plopped them on the grass and both Harry and Lola loved it.

I suppose I will have to buy more next time I visit my local raw shop
