Are you ready for the pigskin tailgate season? Well, you’re not if you don’t have at least a few recipes made with pig skins. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered like a Nickel 40. Try any of these recipes to get the tailgating ball rolling:
The question is … why isn’t National Beer Day on the same day as National Pork Rind Appreciation Day, also celebrated on the same day as the “Big Game”? There’s nothing better than eating pig skins while tossing around the old pigskin, and there’s nothing like a refreshing beverage while watching the Big Game.
But really, who doesn’t like to partake in a cold one with a bag of Southern Recipe pork rinds or pork cracklins? In honor of this special day, we thought it would be a good idea to pair up some of your favorite rinds with a few different beers.
American Light Lager, Blonde (the beer not the barmaid) or Amber Lager pairs well with pizza, pretzels, shrimp and Southern Recipe Salt & Vinegar rinds.
Even if your team didn’t make it to the Super Game, you’ll want to get ready for the biggest “homegate” of the season. Here are a few tips to keep the action going for every football fan:
1. Be aware that a few attending your party may be less than thrilled “fans”. Consider setting up an alternate room for their watching pleasure or set up a gaming area. There’s nothing worse than a 2 point game and a bored pacing spouse.
2. Food keeps everyone happy. Put together a spread that’s easy to replenish. Make a balanced selection of hot and cold choices. Make it easy for your guest to pick up on the run and eat with their fingers. Try our Hot and Spicy Pork Rind Chicken Wings, warm BLT Dip and Walking Pork Rind Tacos. Plus, you’ll have an easier time cleaning up.
3. Celebrate with your own touchdown dance. Think you got the moves? Show ‘em, and you could win $2,500! It’s fun … enter for your chance to win cash and pork rind prizes.
4. Game out of hand? If the score gets out of hand, don’t give into changing the channel. Remember, some of the most entertaining and creative TV all year is the +$3 million commercials. Never, ever talk while the commercials are playing. That’s a sure fire way to get designated to the kid’s TV.

Just because it’s National Bootlegger’s Day (observed on the 17th of this month) doesn’t mean we’re suggesting that you fire up the backwoods still. We’re just giving a nod to a piece of Americana.
Fun fact: in the 1880’s the term “bootlegger” was used because one would conceal a flask of liquor in the top of the boot. Although a more familiar use of the term came in the 1920’s with Prohibition.
So, in honor of this day, we’ve paired our Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds with a twist on the classic Mule drink. This Kickin’ Mule cocktail starts with tequila and end with a slice of jalapeño for added kick. Please enjoy the crunch responsibly.

It’s November. Where we immediately are reminded of that stomach expanding, belt-loosening overindulging Thursday meal. It’s a special time when we sit down with friends and family and share lively conversations about football across the dinner table. Ahhhh, that’s right it’s … National Nachos Day on November 6!
Wait, you did realize that this day rivals any other food holiday out there? Come on, there’s not that many recipes out there where you can have a complete meal all piled on one plate. Especially if you make ’em with our crunchy Southern Recipe Pork Rinds.
Why? Well, we’re glad you asked. When you skip the chip and use rinds as your base, you have a built-in scoop that’s man enough to stand up to even the meatiest of toppings. And, rind lovers, this nacho dish can be eaten with your hands, and that’s not so bad. Try our nachos and have a Happy Nachos Day!
