The most unusual cuts of meat for barbecues: from tradition to barbecue

Beef Hammer: pork shank

The beef shank, often unobtainable whole in Italian butchers, is a cut much loved by true American barbecue enthusiasts, who call it Beef Hammer (or hammer) due to its typical shape which resembles a giant hammer. We in Italy are used to seeing it in our kitchens in a smaller format, i.e. in the ossi bucco version and in risottos, but on the BBQ it releases considerable potential!

Pork Belly: crispy BBQ pork belly

Everyone knows pork belly, whether in cubes, sliced ​​or in thin, bacon-like slices; but few know that this boneless cut of meat which derives from the pork belly - aka pork belly - is a true king when it comes to barbecue. This is because the pork obtained from the belly has a very high percentage of fat and is therefore perfect for being cooked on the grill and obtaining crispy rind.

In this case, the taste is amplified if we also leave its rind during cooking to prepare the crispy pork belly or crispy pork belly: in fact, the rind - if left during cooking - is scored and all the meat is massaged with mixtures and rub , before proceeding with the embers. Good, a little fatty but divine: all we have to do is try this Italian meat delicacy.
