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.

I ordered two of these bone in pork shoulder's for smoking, they turned out even better than expected. The marbling is more uniform throughout the meat and after cooking the meat had an unbelievably buttery texture, it's on a completely different level than what you would normally get at a grocery store. The customer service is also stellar, Esther answered my questions before purchase in a very timely manner, I highly recommend this pork shoulder and will be trying many other Cheshire products!
I have to say that this is by far one of the best pork shoulder’s that I am ever cooked. I smoked it at 225 for 18 hours and the meat was so tinder and flavorful I will definitely be ordering one again in the future
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
