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.

The first pork collar I ordered was was used as my first attempt to make Capocollo. It turned out great! Ordered two more and they are now being cured. Much cheaper then buying in a store and a better quality of pork.
YouTube making Capocollo for anyone interested.

Put on a rub and smoked for 8 hours...it was extremely tender and moist. I've done pork shoulders many times. I don't think there is as much flavor in the collar but it comes out beautifully. I made my favorite light BBQ sauce to go with it and the meal was great.

This was my first experience with SRF and I have to say that it exceeded expectations.
I recently bought a big Kamado grill and have been teaching myself how to grill by buying different cuts of meat. I originally came to SRF for short ribs and decided to throw two of these Kurobata pork collars in my cart, mainly because I had never heard of this cut. While waiting for delivery I found a few recipes and decided I would do a Vietnamese style marinade overnight, grill it over direct heat to get a good char, and then finished it over indirect heat. At 140f, I took it out and rested it for 10 minutes before slicing it.
I have to say that out of everything I’ve been making for the past few months, it was the best, and my family agreed—which was bittersweet, considering the amount of hours I put into smoking briskets and pork shoulders. But they were right, this was the best.

SRF Team : Robert, we love to hear stories like these and we are happy to hear that you enjoy our products as much as we do. Thank you for ordering!
awesome cut , and one of the few people that have it!
Made Coppas with these two beauties. came in a really nice cooler bag , presentation was on point. SRF is one of the only places i found that sold this whole muscle , otherwise id be separating it from a shoulder which would yield a smaller portion. thank you for making this cut available in such high quality. Coppa came out superb. i did a Koji cured Coppa with Calabrian chili. mmmmm
