Buying a Pork Shoulder in South Bay Area

nizzerbean | Jul 12, 2006 06:52 PM


I'm visiting a friend in the south bay area (Redondo Beach) and would like to prepare a pork shoulder to christen his new Weber kettle. I've called about a dozen meat markets I found on Yahoo! Yellow Pages and have only found one place in Torrance that carries it and two other places that I can special order from. All three places quoted me over $2 a pound. I just find it a bit odd coming from NY, where I can get whole pork shoulders readily at any semi-ethnic supermarkets for under $1 a pound, that the whole pork shoulder is so illusive in this part of the left coast. Any leads would be appreciated as it would save me from freezing one and taking it on the plane with me.
