Cushion Meat?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Sam's Club has this in their meat case. I asked the butcher and he told me that it was a boned pork shoulder. Has anyone smoked any?

I haven't seen it though. The peices don't look very big from what I can tell. If you decide to smoke some let us know the out come.

Wish these folks would quit inventing names... similar to country ribs? Without the bone I guess? Smoke it!

The "cushion" comes from the Pork Shoulder Picnic (or Arm), The picnic shoulder is more economical than the Boston Butt, but also contains more fat than the blade shoulder. When the bone and fat is trimmed from this
cut it results in a very rich flavored roast. The meat from this cut is excellent for making juicy barbecued pulled pork. The Picnic has a large bone and joint that runs through the middle of the roast, one side has a
large lean muscle...that is the "cushion". You can also slice and pound them for pork cutlets, stew meat, etc and use them in any chicken recipe.

I think this is a wholesale packer name. The are all kind of names we dont hear of on the reatil scene.

How about a gooseneck? I can't remember what the #$# that was.

I smoked one of these before. I sent the Wife to get some pork shoulder, 6 of them. She came back with 4 pork butts and 2 cushion meat. I even told her to be carefull, as the cushion meat is in the same spot in the case. It is for sure the picnic. It was hammy, but came out OK. I ended up giving it to my wife's relatives.
