Pork Cuts in our Share

Our whole pork [tag #2014], (that weighed in at 275 lbs live and 184 lbs dressed weight) came with the following cuts (click here to see our actual cut sheet/cut instructions), but I thought it might be helpful to see where each cut comes from and ALSO what cooking style meets each cut the best:
