Know Your Meat Cuts – Pork Collar?
Pork Collar is a muscle that runs from the jowl of the pig, through the shoulder, specifically the Boston Butt, Pork Blade and extends close to the loin.
Why is it called Boston butt?
Apparently, butts are named after the barrels pork used to be stored in around the time of the Revolutionary War; they were called butts.
Despite what its name might indicate, the pork butt, also called the Boston butt, comes from the upper shoulder of the hog. Consisting of parts of the neck, shoulder blade, and upper arm, the pork butt is a moderately tough cut of pork with a good deal of connective tissue. Pork butt can be roasted or cut into steaks, but it is also well-suited for braising and stewing or for making ground pork or sausages.
Just above the Boston butt is a section of fat called the clear plate or fatback, which can be used for making lard, salt pork, or added to sausage or ground pork.
Pork shoulder (also known as Boston Butt) is the most popular cut for pulled pork and rightly so as it produces the best result.
