I was working the Capital Area Food Bank this morning doing "product recovery" and I noticed a fair amount of pork tails come through the line. They came from a local HEB. I work there a lot doing various jobs and have never seen pig tails. And I shop a lot of HEB's from Parmer to Slaughter and have never seen pig tails on sale. Worst of all, they were marked down half price to under $1/lb, which really bummed me out.- I would have bought them all.
I've heard that people have had at least moderate success with smoking tails (as in BBQ ). And It's something I've never tried, so it's on my "must have" menu for this weekend. And besides, they're really cool looking :-)
So what H-E-B's carry pork tails?
