My Sneaky Butcher
« on: December 04, 2010, 06:26:11 pm »
I stopped by today to get some stuffed clams.  He gets them from a local place and they're some of the best I've had.  There's actually clams in there.

Anyway, he snuck a couple of rolls from an Arthur Avenue bakery (Bronx) into the bag as well as a couple of pork back ribs.  I figured the ribs would be good as an appetizer. 

The ribs are/were Berkshire pork.  Really nice stuff.  I stuffed them into a 10 inch pan.



A little apple cider vinegar and some of Billy Bob's Que on them.  300 for about an hour.  I pulled them, added some cranberry juice and more Billy Bob's.  The temp went to 325.  This was all done with a cover on the cast iron pan.

Finally, the cover comes off and they get a slather of Iceman's Sop'n Sauce and go under the broiler for about 5 minutes.  This is kind of an extreme example of the "meat pulling back off the bone".  They were just plain mouth watering.  The 'official' dinner was delayed by about 3 hours.

If you get a chance to try some certified Berkshire pork, do so.  Believe me, it's not "your other white meat".  It's PORK.

Arnie gets special treatment but his prices on berkshire for us regular people are very reasonable.   I just wish he was a little bit closer. 

When I talked to him a few weeks ago I think he said something like "I think Arnie wants to move in" ;D

I apologize for not giving proper credit where it was due.  The Billy Bob's Que powder came from SouthernSmoked's daughter.  I think this enterprising lass has a great future to look forward to.
