ISO pork shoulder with skin

kevine | Dec 26, 2008 01:33 PM

We're aiming to cook a pork shoulder (or leg) with cracklings a la porcetta but cannot at all find a butcher that sells it with the skin. A friend of mine from Cuba used to be able to purchase at a place in the Mission but last year was not able to find it there. She wound up going to Ranch 99 in Richmond and was able to buy there but we just asked this year and they said no.
We also tried a Mexican/Central American butcher at another place in Richmond but they said no too. Apparently skin is not as a big a deal in Mexico and Central America as it is in the Carribean.

Can anyone point us to a supply or a butcher in SF or the East Bay that has pork shoulder with the skin on?
