Was wondering if any of you have ever heard of a cut of pork called a pork Cuff. Was talking this morning with Ben Lang and he mentioned he had thrown a couple "Pork Cuffs" on his smoker this morning and conversation got to somthin else befoe I could ask him what that was. Is it a regional term??

Well you sure got me stumped!! I even called my little brother (still cutting meat for a living) and he doesn't have a clue although he thought it might have something to do with the shoulder joint/forearm part of the hog.

Is it possible you misunderstood him? I can't even guess what a "cuff" could be.

As a Chef I've never heard of them either.
But a cuff on clothes is located at the ankle or wrist and that is where a pork hock is located.That would be my guess.Kinda sounds like a British saying(or maybe Redneck?).
It'll be interesting to find out.
