    Pigsket

    From Porter Road, I bought 5 Pigskets. This one was 2 lbs., cooked on pellet grill at 250 for 5 hours until internal at 202. Seasoned with dry brine of Oakridge Bbq Spogos for 24 hours and then rub down with Worcestireshire and seasoned with Hank's KC. I didn't wrap, but will next time to speed up the cook. The flavor was delicious. At $21.00 a piece, not a great value, but a truly unique taste. Four of them were 1.67 lbs. to 2.2 lbs., one was only 1.25 lbs., so that gets a little expensive.

    Looks great! We donโ€™t have pigsket here in Sweden, need to find me a butcher that can cut it out for me.

      Your KC Royale was really good on this. Keep up the good work.

      I love that little cut but have to agree, the bang for the buck doesnโ€™t justify ordering it too often. Thanks for posting though, makes me want to order one!! ๐Ÿ‘

        Thanks for posting this. I have one sitting in the freezer that I also got from Porter Road. Looking forward to the cook & tasking it. I think I may try Jeremy Yoder smoke pork lard wrap experiment when I do my cook.

          This and the beef osso buco are the two unique cuts I find at Porter Road that I can't normally find in my local stores. The osso buco is phenomenal prepared using the Porter Road recipe, in a dutch oven. I love the pork brisket, and have a couple in the freezer, but its not a good value to be honest.

          I am not a fan of charging a flat fee per the piece, versus charging by the pound. If one piece is 1.25# and another is 2.15#, that is some wild variation in value/cost per pound.

            Yeah, I don't like the flat fee idea either. That's why I bought several, figured I'd get some decent size ones. If I only got one and it was the 1.25# one, I'd be bummed out. Probably will only do this once a year and eat it very slowly!!

            Okay, point and flat I assume. LOL. I tried an internet search and found naught.
            Thanks.

            bbqLuv Yes, it looks just like a beef brisket (flat & point), only in miniature.
