Nick Nostril: Who would know?
Ex-Texan: That's what we call "Country Style".Some of the meat markets I go to have these huge rinds, maybe 2 fit in a large bag, and occasionally, you'd get one with a bit of stubble on it, we thought of it as kind of a "Prize", or extra credit kind of thing. Probably they didn't use enough, or hot enough water to get all the hair off.In the 1800s Kohler started making bathroom fixtures like bathtubs, originally made for boiling the hair off pig carcasses. Just gotta make sure they're dead before you put them in the tub.

Evil Mackerel: Ooo fried Chinese river pig, yum.
special20: I thought everyone, and everything came with extra stubble at Walmart.

special20: Evil Mackerel: Ooo fried Chinese river pig, yum.Did somebody say "river pig"?[img.photobucket.com image 520x678]I know, I know... it's a creek. You can't fit the real river pigs into the whole frame.
smoky2010: The best jerky I ever ate was from a local farm near my where they slaughtered the pigs and dried the meat. It still had hair on it. I know another place that slaughters goats and sells the meat. That is very good too.
Burr: trappedspirit: Ex-Texan: Just gotta make sure they're dead before you put them in the tub.Says youI know its joking, but I am just imagining trying to get a live hog into a tub. Those things trash and wiggle when you just pick them up, trying to get them into a tub of boiling water seems like an exercise in futility.
LeroyBourne: special20:I spot a pig nip, and I don't mean the salt pork kind. Hope you don't get a vaca.
TheShavingofOccam123: A pig like that you don't frame all at once.
eyemarten: Disgusting. Keep your pigskin to yourself.
zimbomba63: You may laugh, but, my wife is a Type 1 diabetic, and eats a highly restricted diet so she doesn't have to use insulin. She limits her carbohydrates to 5 per meal, which takes some doing. Pork rinds have no carbohydrates, so it's a guilty pleasure for her. She, also, likes to buy organic, and we always joke that she's on the lookout for organic pork rinds. Our source of the pork rinds, Wal-Mart. I tell her to buy all the bags of pork rinds available, because I don't want to come back any time soon./Wal-Mart story. We walk into the store and the greeter is standing there staring out the window and doesn't, you know, "greet" us, or even seem to realize that someone has entered the store. To my trained eye, I can determined that she has a slight problem. We get a cart and my wife is wondering if the store might have some item she wants, and what department it might be in. She says she's going to ask the greeter and I tell her don't bother, the greeter doesn't know where she, herself, is currently at that moment. We buy the pork rinds and as we approach the door, we see that the greeter is now staring into the store. As we go to leave this circle of hell, the greeter says, mechanically, "Hello". As we walk in the parking lot, I turn to my wife and say, "That's it! That's the Wal-Mart shopping experience in a nutshell."
