I live in Nashua, but will drive to greater Boston to the north. Does anyone know of place I can get pork shanks?

      Don't know if you are making the chili from recent Esquire, but I just did and substituted pork butt. Happy to relate my findings.

      I had tried WF Brighton without luck. A friend also recommended Savenor's, but I was too impatient.

        Dewars in Newton carries Korabuta pork shanks - absolutely delicious.
