Description

The hand of pork is the upper part of the front leg and with its generous marbling though the joint, is particularly forgiving and can be used for a variety of cooking styles, whether dry rubbing, slow cooking and pot roasting, or smoking over many hours. As the meat cooks the fat breaks down, leaving pork that can be easily pulled away from the bone and shredded for a delicious American-style barbecue treat to be popped in a steamed bun. Alternatively, this joint can be braised for a warming centrepiece as the nights draw in.

About the cut

Pork Picnic

The pork picnic, or picnic shoulder, is cut from the shoulder of the pig and is ideal for achieving melt-in-the-mouth tender and juicy pulled pork. Closely related but not to be confused with Boston butt, this is one of our pork butcher's best kept secrets, sourced from truly free-range pigs for only the best flavour.

Tasting notes:
Region:
F&Co Trusted UK Farm

It's good to eat and enjoy meat from free range systems, showing farmers that there is a market for herds reared in an ethical manner. When intensive farming reigned unchallenged in the second half of the last century, many of our traditional breeds all but disappeared because they don't take kindly to factory farming. We want to change this by backing free range farming and helping more people realise that we need to safeguard the variety of our farms and to demand meat with intrinsic flavour that comes from higher welfare systems. All of our meat fits that bill perfectly.
