How much sulfur smell is too much - pork butt?

I have the egg lit and ready to go.  I was prepping two pork butts with sell by dates of tomorrow to throw on the egg tonight.  Holy sulfur smell.  I opened each pork butt and the smell was room clearing.  While trying to not breathe through my nose I rinsed each butt thoroughly, trimmed the fat off, and rinsed them again.  The sulfur smell is still very strong.  They have been sitting out for thirty minutes.  I am tempted to shut the egg down and return the meat.  

How much sulfur smell is too much?  I don't want to taste sulfur when the butts are done tomorrow.  I also think I need to go stand over the daisy wheel and inhale some smoke to get the lingering sulfur smell of out of nose.  Yuck.
