It’s not really new news that I love a good old pork shoulder.
In my opinion, you just can’t beat it! Not only are they affordable but there are so many different things you can do with them. Plus, they feed a crowd. I always have a pork shoulder in my freezer because you just never know. Emergency pork shoulders, anyone?
In terms of the meat itself, I do think it’s important to get the best quality you can. I’ve tried a lot of pork and have settled in on Sonoma County Meat Co. as my very favorite. I buy all my bacon, my shoulders and my chops from them. I’m sure you have a good local brand/farm where you live that brings in the bacon, so to speak. 😉 It’s extremely important to me that the meat I buy is local, pastured and humane. I’d rather not eat meat at all if it doesn’t fit with those three criteria.Pin It
