I need to cook pork for a large party. Due to price and amount issues I would prefer cooking kassler (pork neck) but the recipes I found for pork discuss almost every other part of the pig except neck.

How much does kassler differ from a pork shoulder, for example? If I slow cook kassler like I'd slow cook a shoulder or any other part in given recipes, will it be inedible or disgusting?

Are there any pork preparations that are completely inappropriate for kassler?

    Are we talking about the cut or curing method? Kassler is cured, neck not necessarily so. – Stephie Sep 11 '15 at 5:13
  • @Stephie I'm talking about neck. Sorry for mixing it up with kassler. – bagis89 Sep 13 '15 at 13:41
