    Pike, How about a little more detail on the process. I'm interested. Where do you get the rinds? Local butcher?

    I saw pork rinds on Unwrapped last night. They were doing a profile on Southern foods

    They Look Great...[​IMG]

    I watched them make them at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri years ago. Fresh made rinds are nothing like the stale store bought ones....

    Never thought about making them at home but Why Not?

    I thought "How did he make those?" as soon as I looked at the pics. So I am jumping in with the group and want the details.

    Looks like you got a lot of interest in your pork rinds. That's got to make you feel good and it should, they look wonderful. You did a great job.

    more details.

    the fryer you see i got just for doing rinds and its filled 3/4 full with peanut oil so if you use your reguler fryer you'll need add alot more oil to it, and make some kind of plunger to hold the rinds down into the oil. these chips wont splater when the hit the oil the jst sink and start to exspand (or bubble up) and want to float on top ad they get large but then they shrink when they cool off.
    if you just let them float on top there will be alot of uncooked spots on the rinds..

    Those do look great!
    I was just wondering today about how to pull off NC style "skins" which seem to be more of a smoked cracklin/rind thing. Not sure if frying is involved with the kind I'm thinking of. They're not everywhere but perhaps my fave "lexington-style" NC bbq joint in the state (Cook's in Southmont, NC) has them.

    one of my favorite things about cooking chicken and turkey is that crispy skin as soon as it comes off the smoker or from the oven (my wife prefers turkey done in the oven)...yum-o!
