Pork shoulder is the primal cut made up of the front leg, and containing both the butt and the picnic cuts. We offer it skin-on and bone-in. It is separated from the loin between the first and second rib, and the front foot is removed above the joint, allowing a three inch shank. A two inch collar remains on the butt end, and the fat is beveled to ¼ inch. Shoulders are preferred by many of our pitmaster friends for smoking. They like the subtle differences in the texture and fat content of the butts and picnics, and love to have a little of that cracklin’ skin in their barbecue.
* All perishable orders placed Thursday after 12pm EST through the weekend, will be shipped the following Monday.
Heritage Farm's Bone-In Pork Shoulder was a real crowd-pleaser for our New Year's Day party we hosted for our friends. I've been doing pulled pork for several years, but this is the first time I went with a "premium" option. We were not disappointed. There was a real difference in the quality of the meat and the flavor was out of this world. If you're on the fence regarding whether it's worth the extra money or not...I'd suggest taking the plunge and tasting for yourself.
You can't beat the quality, I've ordered from other vendors like Snake River Farms and Heritage Farms products and customer service is far the best you will find anywhere
