what is the best seasoning for collard greens: pigtails, hamhocks, bacon, neckbones, smoked turkey necks or drums or wings, or just basic salt, pepper, and vinegar?

Smoked ham hocks, white bacon, regular thick slice bacon, smoke turkey necks may be good. Never had them with smoked turkey. Most often Ham hocks. I eat a plate of them as the main course once they come in during the winter. Smoked center cut ham steak cut up into bite size pieces is good too.

I usually use bacon, ham, or smoked turkey. But I LOVE having them with smoked pork and pork fat but of course that isn't healthy.

There is a very cheap "green seasoning" that I picked up at a big international market. I see this brand all over the place but never the green seasonings. I'll try to find a picture online.

The brand name is Spice Classics. I got a bottle for ~$1. It's actually really good and close to anything homemade I've had.

At home I always mix greens because collards or kale are too much for me after a while. So I like some turnip greens and chopped turnip in there too. I'll use chicken broth and thick bacon or ham. I'll also use chopped onion and like to add some pepper vinegar at the end.

Out, though, I think hamhocks do add something extra to straight collard greens.

Good choices here. I typically go with sauteed garlic, onion or shallots, olive oil, sea salt, and pepper.

Smoked neck bones give you all the flavor of ham hocks and a lot more meat. Red pepper flakes are also a food addition. Three hours of cooking makes them nice and tender.
