Pork Knuckle 1

tdjtx's picture
On a recent episode of "No Reservations" on the travel channel they were in Prague. They showed something that looked really good, pork knuckle or pig's knuckle. I've been looking in my area for anything similar, the closest I could find is a small fresh picnic. It turned out pretty good, next time I think I'll let it go longer. I was afraid that if it got to the "fall off the bone" stage it would "fall off the spit". Maybe next time I'll secure it with a ham bag.
