    Pork collar

    At our local store I noticed a package marked pork collar. Never heard of it before. Has anyone cooked one of these before?

    Thanks for the post. I googled Pork Collar. There is information on this cut.
    I just may have to give it a try.

      Very good cut. Treat it like the butt, it is what is referred to as the money muscle if I remember correctly. Have bought several from SRF. I usually pull it at about 160-180F cube it and use it in chili.

      Frequently when I get pork butts, I liberate the collar (AKA Coppa, AKA money muscle) and smoke it at 225º-250º either on the rotisserie or BGE. Pull at about 160º-170º IT and slice.

      The collar is a great cut.

      Oops, just realized sliced collar is not the same one as the other 2 pictures. Both were collars cut from grocery store butts and cooked on kettle with rotisserie though.

        Pretty sure we wouldn't have known they weren't the same if you hadn't told us.

      The depth of AR, thanks Johnny, amazing!


        One of my most favorite cuts. I like them as steaks with a nice sear in CI. I like them as roasts either on the grill or oven. I like them in a box! I like them with a fox! Now I want a coppa roast. Dang it! Looks fantastic!

          Never tried fox. They good eating?

        Sonny's BBQ in Florida has used this cut for their smoked, sliced pork for many years and it is/was amazing - flavorful and moist. I'm trying my first one tomorrow on my MAK 2 star pellet smoker. Got it from Heritage Cheshire Farms here in NC.
        johnec00 - Thanks for the tip on what temp to pull it. I was originally thinking since it's the "money muscle" in a pork shoulder, I was going to cook it to about 205 internal like when I do the shoulder or butt. Would hate to overcook it.

          I’d only go to 160 maybe 180 on that as ofelles stated above. Whenever I do shoulder steaks I only go to 165 and they’re delish.

          The above is if you intend on slicing, not pulling.

        Thanks JakeT.
        Dry brined it last night, dry rub on this morning and just started her at 235F and going to pull it at 165 internal and slice.


          How did it turn out, dsevvy ?

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
