The Snake River Farms pork collar is a beautifully marbled cut with a rich, remarkable flavor. Pork collars are a familiar item in Europe and because of their intense marbling are used to make traditional sausages such as coppa. This boneless cut is starting to gain a following in the U.S. and makes the occasional appearance on restaurant menus. The collar is cut from the shoulder portion that runs from the neck to the tip of the loin. This versatile, boneless item is excellent roasted, braised in stock or cut into chops and grilled.
Due to the unique conformations of this product, approximate weights can vary up to +/- 0.5 pounds.

Wow - I made a wicked Kurobuta pulled pork with a homemade vinegar sauce (I guess similar to Heinz 57) and it was AMAZING! Such a unique and delicious pork (not overly "porkie" tasting as my wife would say). Plus 4lbs makes a LOT of pulled pork. Getting 2 Kurobuta collars this time! Thanks Snakeriverfarms :)

A great cut of pork
Seasoned the pork collar with The Spice House BACK OF THE YARDS rub and let it sit in the fridge overnight. Then wrapped it in two layers of parchment and three of heavy duty foil. Cooked in a 225 degree oven for 24 hours, then pulled it and served on toasted buns with cole slaw and home made Carolina BBQ sauce. Superb. The pork collar itself is not all that expensive and is almost impossible to mess up.

Great Pulled Pork
Smoked the Kurobota Pork Collar in my Kamado Joe to do pulled pork and result was fantastic. Injected with Chris Lilly's pulled pork injection recipe and added some garlic cloves, all before heavily seasoning. Smoked with pecan at 225 for about 8.5 hours to 196 internal. Shredded easily with great flavor, moisture, and bark. Fat had rendered down well and very little was apparent in the final product. Definitely some of the best pulled pork I've had.

Cooked two of these and did them like I would do a pork butt. I could have sliced it as well as pulled it since these did not fall apart like a pork butt does. I pulled it and was worried it would be tough as it was hard to pull. But it was very tender and tasted like a cross between a brisket and a pork butt! Definitely doing these again!!!

The best pork ever!
I order these year round to make my fennel pork and Alleppo pepper pork recipes. There is no comparison with any other pork I've purchased elsewhere. Snake River farms roasts have less fat and unbelievable flavor. Such a huge difference! I appreciate the use of reusable and recyclable packaging!
