Default How To for a pork box

Does anyone know were I can find a tutorial on how to put together a pork box?
More specifically I am looking for a tutorial that shows me where to get all the different parts that need to go into a box. For example where do I find what they call "tubes" and "chunks". Is there a specific location that most people like to take their chunks from?

I have read the article on Pickled Pig which has some great information on the process but not much on how to put together the box. http://http://www.thepickledpig.com/...tion-pork.html

Now if someone has a video that explains this that would be great but some simple advise would be much appreciated as well.

Thanks,
-Eric

The pork box is the box with the most options, and you'll get a lot of different opinions on what works. I did a Google search for "kcbs pork turn in boxes" and looked at images. There I found several dozen examples, and narrowed down my strategy from that. GOod luck!

what you need to do is cook several pork butts..

put on your cotton gloves with latex over them and then slowly take apart the pork butt muscle be muscle. Once you do that just a couple of times you are going to know right where all the best pieces are. you can feel the difference between the different muscles and you can basically just separate along the fat lines.

This has to be done while hot though.

I have been trying just that but I am doing something wrong for I am unable to get the correct pieces.

What I would like to find is a tutorial of exactly what you mentioned. Someone needs to make a video of how to locate the different muscles within the meat.

The tube muscles are on the bottom...it's what the fat cap covers. There are 4 decent size muscles. One is the largest at about 3/4" diameter and a couple at about 1/2" diameter.

If you are doing what DawgPhan suggests, you need to keep doing it. And pay attention. You will soon learn how the butt is made up of the different muscles and how they run.

No two are alike...because you are getting two different pigs' shoulders in a twin pack. But they are all similar.

If you are having trouble separating the muscles, you aren't cooking it long enough.

cook it longer. each muscle should tear away whole at your fingertips. squeeze each to gauge tenderness.

Deciding what should go in the box can be tricky. I'm gonna just simplify things and start turning in only Money Muscle. I can't do any worse than I have been.

Check out this thread. I did a search on youtube and found some decent video's that I posted in there for the OP. Not all 100% what you are looking for, but decent enough. To find 100% of what you are looking for normally costs $$ as rarely do people just give it away and there are a few teams with online classes.

Take your meat from around the bone and the money muscle end. Leave the middle alone. keith
