Pork neck bones
By Bob Oros
A pork "neck bone" is the part of the hogs bone structure that goes from the top of the back bone to the shoulder. When the hog is broken down the neckbone is removed from the shoulder. They are used in many receipes, especially after they are smoked, as a way to season vegetables and beans. They can also be cook on the grill as an inexpensive piece of BBQ meat.
Many wholesale meat companies buy them to smoke, package and resell to retail stores .
