    I thought I'd try them years ago.

    A bbq place that I frequented had them on the menu.

    I ordered my normal to go order and added an order of chitlins.

    When I got home I opened the container, looked at them and threw them out.

    Nasty looking and smelling things.

    I know they surely do reek while they're cooking but I'd always heard that if cleaned and cooked properly they don't have an offensive odor ...

    That definitely could be true.  My restaurant is no longer there.

    I did the same trial with pickled pigs feet from Phillipe's and the outcome was the same.

    I've tasted 'em.    They taste just like they smell.........

    .....if cleaned and cooked properly they don't have an offensive odor ...
      Then I never seen anyone that could cook 'em. Even after cooking twice in multiple changes of water. That 5lb tub pictured above wont fill up a soup bowl after being cooked.

    Not quite, but close.   Sausage casing is made from the small intestine and all the fat has been removed.   Chitlin (sh--lins) is from the large intestine and usually includes the exterior fat.  There is a taste difference!

    I have eaten them. I actually ate them despite having been in the same house where they were being cooked. I cannot imagine ever, 1. eating them again, and, 2. remaining anywhere near a place where they are being cooked.

    Chitlins, yes ONCE in the late sixties. Suckered into it. I was having lunch at a soul food(roadfood) cafe in Nashville with a friend who was a popular dj at an all black radio station. Being the only white boy in the place I wanted to fit in so when Julian suggested we each get chitlins on our meat and three, I said sure. WOW, what an experience!!! I found that I could get them things down by mixin'em with the turnip greens and fat back topped with lots of tabasco sauce! Never again! Same goes for the slaughter house scraps in menudo........

    I had a friend in Nashville who had a little "Getaway Farm" out in the Beautiful TN hills. Every fall he and his Daddy would host their "Semi-Annual Summer - Fall - Winter - Spring Chittlin Festival and Nut Fry". 20 to 30 Good Ol' Boys would gather to Watch College Football, Drink Beer, Tell Lies and Eat Those Southern delicacies. "Daddy" was a Supreme Chittlin Chef and would bread up and deep fry those Chittlins and cook them to perfection. They were VERY Good when eaten with a thin slice of Raw Onion and some hot sauce on Saltines. When I went home to Momma that night, she said she could smell me comin' 2 blocks away! Man did I Stink! I slept on a couch in a little room above the Garage on the end of the house for 2 nights. That stuff oozes through your pores and all other orifaces for days!!!

    I can't cook these because I'd feel they were never clean enough no matter how many times I'd bathe and rinse them. I'd never leave the kitchen sink.

    Re: My posting above- The problem you were having is related to the way you approached the cleaning process. My friend's Daddy would "Stump Wump" his Chittlins. The Quality of the Chittlin was measured by the number of times it had been "Stump Wumped". He would take the product and smack it down on a tree stump. One Stump Wump, ????? - Two Stump Wumps, Getting better - Three Stump Wumps, Gettin' there and Four Stump Wumps was as good as it gets!!! " /> He always Four Stump Wumped his Chittlins and they were just fine!

    My grandparents both came from frugal farm stock.  They didnt get to the US until right after the turn of the century.  My grandfather always did 1 hog every fall.  He butchered it in the basement and used everything.  Even the blood went into sausage.  He used to take the intestines to an empty lot and "throw" them.  Youve never seen a more disgusting sight.  He would sitnk so bad My grandmother made him  wash in the laundry room .  I would never eat them but it smell like diapers boiling when he cooked them.  He got mustard gassed in WWI.  He had no tastebuds or sense of smell.  Everything he ate was loaded with saly and horseraddish.

    I'm sorry, I don't care what you do but you can not beat the sh--t out of it.   ........... As everyone here that stated chitlins were good, they had to flavor them so heavy with onions, lemons, & hot sauce that you could not taste the real deal.    .....So why eat 'em?      ......I can eat onion, lemons & hot sauce without the sh--lins.  Just mix some fatback with greens and nobody will know the difference ...........   Wanta be really mean, drop a few nibblets of corn in the greens and tell the customer/guest that the next time you'l check the chitlins a little closer before serving.   .........

    There is a Chitlin Strut (festival) in Salley SC each year.  I've been.  The smell isn't all that great.  I can stand Chitlin's fried with lots of hot sauce on them.  I've had boiled Chitlin's a few times. Each time it was a bit hard to get them down.

    I had them once back in the 60's at a soul food restaurant in Roxbury, MA. They were boiled and pretty difficult to choke down. Smelled like a hog lot. A friend tells me they are pretty good when fried...gonna take his word for it.

    Have tried and like them, mostly at chitlin' festivals, fried the best. Now animal fries are better, festivals also. Festivals with cook offs insure that the best are there. Have tried in rest., nowhere close.
    Guess it's the open air deal. Smells like money.
