Necks, shoulders, and shanks are as prized as backstraps in the Blanchard house. I cringe anytime I see a round roast go into a crockpot and neck meat into a grinder. It's completely backwards. Probably my favorite thing to do with shanks is my sweet and spicy Barbacoa.

I'm afraid to see what goes into your grinder meat pile.

I will admit it looks pretty good.
There is a big difference between shank and neck meat.
If that's what you get out of shank meat,that's pretty good .
You better share that recipe so others can benefit.

Ha ha, all of my game necks get corned. You cannot tell them from good corned beef. I also corn ducks and geese. My front shoulders on deer are usually made into large roasts they will feed a family and make the best as you sandwiches or French dips whatever you wanna call them that you can eat most of the time you can barely get two days out of a shoulder.

I need to get a bandsaw!!   I usually cut the meat off the bone or do the entire bone in shank.  I bet that bone marrow offers a lot of flavor.    :drool: :drool:

I always freeze them separately. They make better stews and braised dishes than other random trimmings. They also make a better canned product in my opinion.

Crosscut bone in. Cooked in a dutch oven or crock pot. Incredible. The first cuts off my moose that I cooked.
