Shank Recipe - From Serious Eats Blog

I was thinking of cooking this recipe for Christmas dinner.  Only change would be to sear it on the egg, and then finish it on the egg (assuming it holds together after the braise).  Anyone have experience with shanks on the egg?  Any suggestions or modifications to the recipe that you would suggest?

    I have cooked them in the past braised and then grilled, brined then grilled and finally seasoned with S & P and then cooked low and slow.

    All werebig hits bur brined for three days and then grilled were the best. Very tender and juicy!

    You're welcome, Richard.

    Had this pork shank begging to be cooked so seared at 350F on small BGE for 15 minutes per side. 30 minutes total: 


    Placed some sauerkraut, little turbindo sugar and some onions in the pot: 


    Next went the carrots and potatoes: 


    Tossed in a 16 oz can of Bud and covered with water, little seasoning and cooked at 300F top of DO off for 3 hours: 


    Guess what I found? 


    Decided to cook a few in my 4 qt DO on the small, so first did a direct 350F for 20 minutes per side to crust up after being rubbed overnight with a pork rub. 


    Then removed and placed in DO with potatoes, cabbage, onions and carrots: 


    4 hours latter they were ready.
