Just a heads up for those of you who use Tapatalk to access NCH&F. I will be removing support for that app effective immediately. The reasons are many, but the primary one is that it allows spammers to post here without first being authorized to do so. This, coupled with their increasingly aggressive and invasive ads and pop ups, has caused us to remove them from the site entirely.
We have really expanded our cooking techniques the last few years. Used to cut out backstraps and cut up hams for frying and such and pretty much everything else went to the "grind" pile. I will say the neck roast is now our favorite cut for any type of "slow cook stew". Ribs have come a long way in the last couple of years as well. We plan on working on the shanks more this year. Thanks for sharing ideas. Probably my favorite forum to read on this site.
