And pork neck is one of their favorite cuts!

➡️ In some western countries including the United States, until recently many avoided eating one of the most delicious cuts of pork, namely pork neck, which is also known as pork shoulder because they thought it contained a lot of fat. Probably, many did not know that this fat melts and drains during roasting, especially when you prepare the meat on the grill, so the resulting pork steaks contain very little fat that makes the meat juicy and tender. My pork neck BBQ recipe helps you cook pork steaks with simple and tasty ingredients for BBQ or for frying in the oven.

3 PRO Tips for the BBQ Grilled Pork Neck Recipe

➡️ There are not too many cooking tips to share regarding this BBQ grilled pork collar recipe. Below are three of the most important tips to get the best results when making grilled pork neck:

  • slice the meat correctly, namely don’t cut meat slices either too thick or too thin because thin slices will result in a dry steak while thick meat slices will result in a raw barbecue
  • leave enough time to marinate meat and absorb flavors, I recommend you wait at least 3 hours but, ideally, you should wait overnight to get the best results
  • roast the meat properly – don’t rush to put meat on the barbecue until the wood or coal is incandescent because flames will burn meat on the outside and inside it will remain raw
