    The Sergeantsville Inn occasionally has them as a special.

      I pretty sure they sell these at the dutch market (in Kingston on route 27) at the back of the store food counter

        Yes, I was there today for the first time and saw "Hawg Wings - $7.99 lb.". Didn't buy any, but bought some pretty good smoked spare ribs.

        Had me some Pig Wings for the first time at Pete's Steakhouse in Hamilton (Mercer County) today while watching March Madness. They were really good and definitely worth seeking out. The cheesesteaks were also above average.

          I have not seen them here in the Garden State in anything other than an occasional osso bucco preparation as a menu special. I did have them at Mac's Speed Shop in Charlotte (as referenced in the NYT article: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/30/din...) and thought that they had a good idea, but really didn't execute well. I have been thinking about recreating it ever since. I hope to see them in restaurants soon.

              You can get them at Rob's Bistro in Madison on Tuesday nights, except they put on the menu Pork "Osso Bucco". Had it last week for the first time, definitely impressed.
              I would love to see this start popping up all over the place.

                Restaurant L in Allendale.

                You can also get them at better butchers. They are easy to cook.

                  Didn't know that L had them. Thanks. I think L was better under the previous chef. Haven't been in a while but last time I was there it was "so-so" to "ok" at best.

                    I'm not a huge fan of the place either.
