anybody do pig wings on their menu. Usually they are 2oz shanks. Ive heard of people smoking them and or frying them. Look like chicken wings but taste like ribs. Thoughts

I have never done them myself, but have tried them from a once in a while competitor at an event, very good smoked and sauced. Every event I have done with him, he ends up packing up early because he sells out!! People want to try them because of the novelty, they come back because he does them quite well!!

considered them, but not available through my suppliers.

I know they'd be a hit where I am at.

I do know of a place that is doing tails, they slow simmer them, and fry to order.

Last time I checked they were kinda pricey. I think they would sell great though in a festival type setting.

Cool, thanks.

I swear we have the most poorly stocked Sysco house in the nation (Baraboo)
Rinehart isn't much better, and our local independent purveyor buys from the same people that I do, but they do get product from US foods too.

Isn't US Foods owned by Sysco now?? You can always special order and if you sell enough they will stock for you. I have an item special stocked, but I go through 20 cases a week. And they special order my pork bellies every week. Maybe some of the azzes are at the purveyors?

I talked with the guy, who is not currently doing them due to cost - $1.67 per 4oz portion through my supplier [ GFS ] !!!!! He said his were similar $$...No room for profit there!!
What kind of price are you looking at Ole'e??

That merger is still in the works, it needs approval from the DOJ or some other alphabet soup apparently.

I do not get any meats through Sysco, My Sysco House does not even stock fresh pork butts in my region, those are special order here ( I told you they suck) and special order is about 10 days lead time.
My usage varies wildly from week to week, I can get 2 trucks weekly for our meat, and they come from 3.5 hours away.
and the only spare ribs they carry are enhanced, they do have brisket, but small and averaging $0.42/LB over my cost through our specialty meat provider.

I picked some up from my sysco. They are a farmland product there are 80 pieces to a case. The case was 81.68. They are fully cooked so all you need to do is bring them up to temp. I grilled a few and coated with sauce. They are damn good.
