Go to your Butcher. I have a local butcher, mind you they compete in BBQ contests, that I get my Pork Shoulders from. I am in Brantford, Ontario.

Occasionally you see a Picnic Shoulder in the Grocery store, but your best bet is to hit up a butcher.

As a matter of fact I just bought a shoulder yesterday, seasoned it up last night, throwing it on the smoke later today(using applewood), to be served tomorrow. It is about 17lbs.

Informative site. Thanks. Wonder why they don't show the other parts, particularly ham hocks or other bones with meat used a lot in stews and soups. I love thick sliced bacon, too.

I guess there is only so much you can show in one diagram.

Bacon is pork belly and is the outer layer of meat on the spare ribs. The hocks are at the end of the leg cuts just above the hooves.

Some people even eat the hooves (pigs feet). Now that I haven't tried. haha

Like you, said 'you can almost eat everything from a pig. I love pork rinds. I could buy them freshly cooked in Australia. Man, pork rinds the size of a dinner plate. Mmmmm

I saw the title and just had to click on the thread and check it out!

I asked DW if I could post a picture of my butt before I cooked it, and she replied, "Post a picture of your butt and it will be cooked!"
