watch for smoked hocks or shanks on sale-- best stock ever

last week ideal had smoked ham shanks for 1.09#. they'll cut them to order, too.
these make a very tasty stock. here i've browned an onion, then added about $2 worth of shank and added water to almost cover. this picture is taken right before i was going to add more liquid and some greens.
i also recommend throwing a dried chili pepper into any broth to help round out the flavor.
