Looking for Pig Knuckles in Philly

Really wanting to make a gorgeous roast pig knuckle, but having a hard time getting my hands on raw materials. Have tried Asian market and local butcher with no success. Anyone know a good source? Thx!

  1. I'm pretty sure you can find them on 9th St at many locations.

    1. Try Rieker's in the Fox Chase section of Philadelphia 215-745-3114.

      1. You haven't seen pork hocks, shanks, feet, etc? Asian markets, in my experience, carry every part of the pig. But I haven't seen them use the term 'knuckle'.

        Here's on old thread discussing which part is the knuckle (which apparently is a German usage)

        1. Saw them at Reading Terminal market at Halteman's Family counter. They also have pig's feet, and ham hocks.

          1. They sell it at this Chinatown market in the link below. I see it every time I go there in their section as soon as you walk in. They also have a butchery in the back on the other side of the cash register.
