Cooking with Pork Shoulders?

Beagle7 | Feb 22, 2004 06:53 PM


I was at the butcher recently and they were having a special on "Pork Shoulders" - these huge chunks of Pork that were practically the size of roast chickens. My question is how to cook these things? I was thinking of buying one and cutting it up and cooking those smaller pieces? But I am not sure what meats come from the pork shoulder- as in, do they get pork tenderloins from them? Or meat for bacon? Or ground pork? Or a ham? Am I making sense? Like with a cow- the meat from the shoulder is different from the meat from the middle torso area...and so on. If anyone has any recipes, hints or tips on what to do with Pork Shoulders, I'd appreciate it greatly. Thank you,
