Pork Rinds: The Other, Other White Meat

Did you know October is National Pork Month? Hey, we love celebrating meat holidays … especially ones that are near and dear to our hearts. And there’s nothing nearer to pork than our crunchy pork rinds.

Pork chop stuffed with pork rindsPork Fact: eating pork dates to 1490 B.C. when China domesticated pigs. It’s not a far stretch to think that rinds were tried about that time as well.

In honor of “Pork-tober,” let’s double down on a recipe made especially for this month: Pork Rind Stuffed Pork Chop Bombs. Take stuffing made from Southern Recipe Pork Rinds, stuff it inside a pork chop and as an extra kick, use this recipe to bread the outside of the chop with – you guessed it – pork rinds! It’s a triple treat!

Make Your BBQ Go Boom!


This is the month of freedom and we’re celebrating our independence!

Southern Recipe asks, “Why not make it more significant?” Let’s break away from “not good for us” snacks and take back your independence for good snacking.

Our pork rinds can help you get there.

Pork rinds really are a power snack that’s a gluten-free, zero carb, and low-calorie crunch. You can’t go wrong with our delicious little beauties. Here are a few things you are better off not eating so you can keep leaner than an on-duty Marine.

  • If your popcorn is floating, so will you– Popcorn can be loaded with butter. Butter in moderation is good but if a package is labeled as “mega-butter”, “lots-o-butter” or “Butter BUTTER!”, stay away. If you need the fix butter provides, try protein packed rinds. You’ll be satisfied without expanding your boxers.
  • Mr. Potato Head– Potato chips are something we should all avoid. Who wants greasy, calorie-filled, yellow tubers when you can have light, airy, melt-in-your-mouth, cooked-with-real-love, pieces of heavenly protein? Unlike spuds, we don’t mess with your blood sugar. Eat and be merry and don’t eat something that’s buried under the ground.
  • Cracked for sure– Crackers are not your friends. They’re little circles and squares of culinary bad news and hate. Crackers are filled with refined flour, hydrogenated oils and high-fructose corn syrup. There are better American ingredients that will keep you soaring with the eagles. Lighten up and let’s eat with the dignity our forefather’s expected! Pork rinds are your answer!

Southern Recipe will fly the stars and stripes over bad snacking and let you rise above the common snack! Your Uncle Sam won’t just be proud, but your whole family too.

Fireworks shouldn’t be the only things exploding during your Fourth of July party. Your flavors should be just as bold as a Revolutionary War solider. Southern Recipe has a rind to fit everyone’s taste.

  • The working man’s rind– Our Salt and Vinegar Pork Rind may seem Plain Jane at first but there’s something more going on below the surface. The yum is there in spades. This is more than just a utility snack; it’s a necessity that keeps America moving. Just like today’s modern worker, Salt and Vinegar Pork Rinds keep America moving.
  • Light it up– Our Hot and Spicy Pork Rinds can light the fuse on your Fourth of July food fireworks. We love these just about as much as we love freedom. Up the ante on your taste buds and wake everyone up with the Hot and Spicy boom of flavor.
  • America’s Favorite– And can we talk about our Original Rinds? These are what started it all and what the good old U.S.A. has consistently made number one year after year. They compliment a BBQ, make a great crust for grilling, and just have the snap that makes snacking fun. There’s nothing more American than our original rinds.

No matter what Southern Recipe flavor you bring to the BBQ, you’re celebrating the fourth with a true American legacy.

  • Lager: Lagers are traditionally light and refreshing beers. If this is the brew you tend to reach for, grab a bag of Salt and Vinegar pork rinds! The tang of the salt and vinegar goes great with the crisp notes found in lagers.
  • Ale: Some Ales have notes that are a bit fruity and spicy. Turn up the heat and grab a bag of Hot and Spicy Southern Recipe Pork Rinds. The subtle heat found in the rinds will compliment the notes of spice found in your ale.
  • IPA: IPA’s tend to have a bitter and hoppy flavor. We suggest reaching for a smoky snack to go with this beer. There’s no better choice than our Bar-B-Q rinds!
