JakeInJersey Beef knuckles and beef tips are completely different things. The knuckle comes from the knees of the back legs and looks like a giant knuckle..hence the name.

I like them raw for my dogs.. keeps them busy for hours.

Also, you might want to try sourcing from a pet store rather than a supermarket as they may carry the bigger meaty bones. Raw femur are a good bone to give occasionally, however there is rarely any meat on it just the marrow inside.

Yeah I figured they were for making soup, I guess I just wanted to know what part of the animal it was from?
