If ya got a hankerin' for some smoked pork, these smoked pork recipes will surely satisfy your cravings. Pork, in other circles, is known as the "Other White Meat". Well, not for us smokers. Perfectly smoked pork should have a beatiful pink smoke ring encompassing the surface.
There are lots of pork cuts that can be smoked. Pork loins and tenderloins, shoulders and shanks, fresh hams and picnics, pork chops and steaks; all are great cooked in the meat smoker. You might even try smoking up a batch of neck bones sometime. I did, and they're pretty tasty. You have to work to eat 'em, but they do taste good!
And pork is inexpensive, too. I just bought a pair on really nice pork shoulder picnics for $1.19 per pound. (time of this writing: August 9, 2008) Granted, it takes $8.00 worth of charcoal to cook 'em, but it's worth it!
