In a large 6 quart pot, cook the smoked meat in 6 cups of water for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until fall off the bone tender. This step may be done up to 2 days in advance. Pick the meat off the bones and return the meat only, to the cooking water.
Meanwhile, remove the rib from each leaf and stack 8 to 10 leaves on top of each other. Roll each stack into the shape of a cigar and slice into 1 inch strips.
Add the collard greens and salt to the pot and continue cooking for 30 minutes longer, until the greens are tender.
Drain and serve as a side dish with any Southern or barbecued food.
