"Clod," as in a shoulder of beef from Texas. "Clod" is in OED and DARE, but  
not in this sense. It's not in William Grimes's EATING YOUR WORDS.
This was written up in this week's Village Voice:
Though you can also get pork ribs and pork chops, the emphasis is on beef,  
most especially brisket ("fat beef") and shoulder ("lean beef"). Also known as  
"clod," the latter resembles a clod of earth from the surrounding cotton 
fields  in its humpy blackness, and tastes something like smoked roast beef.
