Pork Picnic Cuts

pork picnic shoulder = pork arm shoulder    This comes from the lower part of the pig's shoulder.  It's usually made into smoked hams, but fresh picnic shoulder makes for very juicy barbecued pulled pork.


pork arm picnic = pork picnic roast = fresh pork picnic = pork picnic shoulder roast = fresh pork picnic ham  Notes:  Southerners like to use this fatty, bony cut to make barbecued pulled pork.  It's also available boneless.  This is also a good, economical cut to get if you want to make ground pork, kabobs, or stir-fry strips.  Substitutes:  Boston butt (similar, but with a slightly different flavor)

pork arm steak = pork shoulder arm steak = pork arm chop = pork picnic steak  Notes:  This are slices cut from the arm picnic.  They're best if braised slowly.  Substitutes:  pork blade steak
