Pork wings

Some places here in centrial Illinois are selling pork Wings. In looking at them they look like a rib bone with a chunk of meat on the end. I'm thinking they come from a pig leg. Anyone selling these or have you had them? Or better yet do you know where on the hog they come from?
Thanks
Jack

    They sell them at a place on the West Side of Cincinnati called Take 5. They were on the appetizer menu, and I had them. There were 2 in an order, came with your choice of wing sauce, and they were huge!! My friends and I thought they were pork ribs with the meat pushed up on the bone to resemble a wing, but we weren't sure [and weren't sure how they accomplished this]. The bone looked like a pork rib bone. It wasn't any bigger than a rib bone, but with lots of meat on top. When we asked our server, her answer was "I don't know, we buy them that way".

    I was just at the Wurstfest in New Braunfels, TX, and they had these there. They were so delicious, I went back for more and more... OMG, if you've never tried these, they're amazing. If you have, you totally know what I'm talking about.

    I need to find a local restaurant (Austin) that serves these on a regular basis. They look like too much trouble to make myself, but any place that serves these will get me as a loyal customer. I hope it's not just "fair food"...

    Greyghost; Dearfolk,
    Where do you suppose they fly to when they go south for the winter? Pork Lauderdale? -- Surely not Bacon County, Georgia?!?

    P. S. Go scrounge up your maps... Coffee County, Georgia is only a swine's fly from Bacon County... convenient, so say the least.

    Sysco, US Foods, and many smaller food service companies carry them. Many smaller commercial restaurant suppliers have a small section open to the retail public.

    Our local Amish Farmer's market recently started selling these.

    They call them "Haug Wings"

    Very good - not as messy as Buffalo wings - or Baby Back Ribs

    I bought a couple of these porkshanks from Nueske's a month ago when they were on sale and offered free shipping. They were fantastic and I'm now trying to track down a source here in Georgia. At their regular price, it's a no-go but, for $19.95 for two very large portions, they were (imho) worth it. Check them out. pb

    I buy pig shanks for under $2.oo from the local butcher.. I cook them in a crock pot with sauerkraut, on low, for approx. 8 hours. Another recipe is using mushroom soup and a pint of heavey cream over the shanks in the crock pot. I add fresh mushrooms and onion the last 2-3 hours.

    Other than the Smoking Process, What is the difference between these Shanks and what we find in the butcher cases labeled "Ham Hocks"?

    Judging from this chart, none. Problem is, around here, the hocks are cut up and cured/smoked, or still connected to the ham.

    Just ask your grocer to order you some whole shanks or not to cut all the shanks up.

    Why the shank vs. the ham?

    Paul,
    This topic has caught my attention as well. I sense that the shank which has much bone adds great flavor, appearance and texture. We enjoy cooking with smoked ham hocks often. Guess its my Tennessee roots. I would appreciate suggestions as to where I might purchase an unprocessed hog leg. No additives, just the real thing.

    That would be the same thing as "fresh ham"? pb
