I was talking to a guy this weekend and he was telling me how he always rinses game meat 3x before freezing or eating. I asked "why" and he had no real answer. I mentioned that fresh meat should have no bacteria on it and, any bacteria it does have is on the surface and destroyed when cooking.

This got me to thinking. With the exception of gut shot animals, which tend to require a rinsing of some sort to get intestinal matter off the meat, do you rinse your meat before eating or freezing. Why or why not?

Wild & crazy, can't be stopped. Only the strong will survive.

Keep your knife sharp and your skillet greasy.
