          Next time leave the shank whole and cut it 3 fingers down from the knuckle . Load it with salt n pepper and smoke that knarly piece of meat until about 206-210F. All that tough tendons will turn into Jelly . osso bucco...

            It's definitely a shank. The two bones appear to be tibia and fibula, which would make it most likely a hind leg. The amount of meat also suggests hind leg.

              Shank-a-licious !! I'd suggest doing this with them...

              Osso Bucco

                Troutman -Thanks for re-sharing your recipe! It's going into Paprika.Osso Bucco was the best dinner I had when I visited Rome years ago. So darn good that I went back to the same restaurant the next night to have it again!
