Leftover pork

I wonder if I'm the only one that has this problem with leftover pork...unless it's shredded and in a spicy sauce, to me it always has a bit of a strong, funky taste. I'm talking all kinds of pork here, even leftover pork chops or grilled pork steaks. Today I ate some leftover pork roast that I knew was absolutely fine, I still got that taste.
My husband says that's just the way pork tastes, but I always love it the first night.
Am I crazy? (well, maybe I should word that differently... ) Do any of you ever notice this taste in leftover pork?

I too, frequently have pork left over. Just the two of us now, kids out and about. A pork tenderloin is more than we eat at one sitting. I still BBQ a whole shoulder. etc.
I do not recall any funny aromas. I do see my shredded pork shoulder has more fat in it after it cools than it does when hot.
After re-heating it is not as noticeable.
Aroma?, nothing wierd to me.

It's not the aroma, Hopz...it smells fine. I'm talking about a strong taste.

I haven't noticed a different taste, but I usually use barbecue sauce or gravy with my leftover pork since it tends to be a bit dry without it.
