I have owned a lot of dogs. I don't really think a dog cares one lick whether the bone/meat is cooked or smoked or whatever. As a matter of fact when given the choice between a fresh-killed woodchuck or one that has bloated and sat in the sun for two weeks the dogs always opt for the rotten chuck. Too soft to eat they can always roll in it.
I don't feed my dogs bones, other than Milk Bones, but I have a Pitt Bull though that I don't think it would hurt. I've found where she got hold of aluminumn drink cans and there was nothing left but the ends.
Exactly Hook.. rib bones are pretty splintery. I used to feed my dogs anything and, fortunately, never had a problem.. now I know better.. as you say.. knuckles and femur's. One trip to the vet will cause youto never do it again.. but now you know better than to even try it. When I got my last dog at a rescue place.. they gave me three frozen buffalo knuckles.. boy, did he go crazy over them.. BUT, he would have loved a cow knuckle just as much.
As an aside.. every time I hear about not giving your dog bones, I wondered. How the species survived, evolving from eating dinosaurs to the domesticated pet they are. They are afterall carnivores. I have no evidence to the contrary so I too will stop giving my JR beef bones. She loved the smoked dino ribs (beef) bones.
