Favorite Pig Product

I was thinking the other day (dangerous, I know!) and I decided that most of the things I love to eat come from da piggie. Bacon, sausage, pork roasts, spare ribs, Taylor pork roll, hot dogs, ham, prosciutto....I could go on and on. But if I had to name a favorite pig product, I think it would have to be bacon. It's salty, smokey flavor is perfect with so many things. And the smell of it frying can start me drooling.

So what is YOUR favorite pig product?

    I agree: bacon.

    Answering, I admit, was really just an excuse to provide a transcript of one of my favorite Homer Simpson moments:

    Homer: Are you saying you're never going to eat any animal again? What about bacon?

    Lisa: No.

    Homer: Ham?

    Lisa: No!

    Homer: Pork chops?

    Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal!

    Homer: Heh heh heh... ooh... yeah... right, Lisa.
    A wonderful... magical animal.

    Favorite pork products:
    1st: North Carolina mountain country cured ham, 2nd: Lexington style (also North Carolina) BBQ.

    I am in Kansas City this week, and I will partake heavily of my 3rd place favorite, barbecued ribs (not dry rub). I am going to Snead's (Belton, Missouri) for burnt ends today and will probably get by Arthur Bryant's later this week. Going to Gates would probably be over kill, and I am not a fan of KC Masterpiece.

    I love bacon but I would have to vote prosciutto. A prosciutto sandwich on ciabatta bread with fresh mozzarella, basil, tomato, EVOO is divine. In the summer I wrap it around grilled asparagus and it's the major component of raclette. Second choice would be ribs! YUM!

    My vote goes to Pork Roast.

    THe rest of my votes (I get as many as I want as I am from Louisiana and we adhere to the "vote early and often" school of democracy)go to bacon, ribs, tenderloins, chops, and cracklins.

    The noble pig. Where would we be without the other white meat?

    Really difficult to say what I like best; ham, sausage, pork loin, barbecued pork. All are so deliciious in all of the many ways they can be cooked, but I would have to include in my list of least favorite of "major" pork products (and even they are good) barbecued ribs, bacon, and SCBuzz's fatback (when served fried; love it cooked in with vegetables). Omitted from consideration are pigsfeet, ears, snouts, souse, neckbones, organs, and 'chittlins.

    LOVE pork! Especially those boneless pork loins and, for a sandwich, serrano ham.

    My son just got his pig for FFA over the weekend, and I went up to the AG barn to watch him and one of his buddies "training" them to walk with the pig sticks. Funniest thing I have seen in ages. I even gave it a shot thinking it could not be worse than corraling a bunch of toddlers. Wrong! They are young pigs and most uncooperative and squealing to high heaven.

    They all have a basketball in their pens for entertainment. Clay has named his pig "Romeo", and he will be shown at the Houston livestock show.

    I hope it doesn't make it harder to enjoy all good porky things.

    (Oh yes, my daughter is raising a goat...his name is Marlin )

    TN country ham (but haven't tried NC's); then bacon (thick-sliced), sausage patties (NOT links), city ham, loin if I can get one that isn't too lean, then any roast.

    Hillbilly, can you direct me to a site for NC hams? I'm curious.

    That grease helps the platelets slide right through, doesn't it

    I guess if I had to pick one that would be really hard to give up, it would be bacon. Pulled pork is dreamy, though.

    My Top Eleven Porcine Choices

    1. Sugar cured ham as prepared and baked by a wonderful, long gone Harrison County, Kentucky family. I'm sure some other Bluegrass families cure and bake it this way, but I've not been fortunate enough to know any. I doubt any food will ever please me more.

    2. Three year old Kentucky country ham, salt cured like that served at the Beaumont Inn, Harrodsburg, Kentucky. They cure their own hams.

    2. North Carolina barbeque, East Carolina style. Whole pig slow roasted over wood coals, with a few dashes of simple vinegar and red pepper sauce.

    3. North Carolina babeque, Lexington style. Pork shoulder cooked over wood coals and served with Lexington Dip.

    4. Good ol' Mellwood style sugar cured or hickory smoked breakfast bacon from Fischer's Meats in Louisville, Kentucky. For breakfast and dozens of summer BLTs.

    5. Dem baby back ribs.

    6. The pork chop in its many fine incarnations: smoked, breaded and fried, grilled, baked with apples, etc.

    7. Smoked Polish sausage like that made at Chicago's Lasak Deli.

    8. Roasted pork tenderloin.

    9. Country ribs grilled in the backyard.

    10. Thick sliced country bacon, fried crisp, to eat with slow cooked, pork and salt seasoned green beans from the garden, sliced tomatos and corn bread. The hot grease is poured onto a big mess of just pulled lettuce and green onions. My all-time favorite summer meal.

    11. Smoked jowl for all the good flavor it imparts to southern style vegetables.

    Dearfolk,
    My favorites are, in roughly descending order, livermush (especially Mack's Hot from Shelby, N. C.), scrapple (haven't decided a favorite here), small-maker sausage with plenty of black pepper (Holifield Family Mo-Peppa from Covington, GA.), same with plenty of sage (someone in Tennessee made one that was plumb green, but I don't remember the local maker - maybe in Springfield, TN.?), Counts' Onion Sausage from Prosperity, S. C., pulled pork with mustard sauce (either Jackie Hite's or Shealy's in Batesburg/Leesville, S. C. will do nicely), pulled pork with vinegar sauce (Jackie Hite's and Shealy's again, or Ralph's in Weldon, N. C.), Thomas' Hot Souse from Griffin, GA., Zeigler's Hot Souse from Tuscaloosa, AL., any righteous breakfast tenderloin (I don't know where Plantation Buffet here gets theirs from), and goetta (it's got to be good if it's related to livermush and scrapple).
    Currently, I'm trying to be less porcine. I'll be bac on another occasion; link by.
    Oinksomely, Ort. Carlton in Wiggly, Not Piggly, Athens, Georgia.
    P. S. Does anyone remember Bestoink Dooley on Atlanta tv?

    Phil J. beat me to posting one of the greatest bits of pork humor from the Simpsons. But there's more! No. 2 would have to be Krusty the Klown's onstage heart attack while hawking his line of meats to the kids:

    I've got a hankerin' for some pork products! [Sideshow Bob wheels in a barebecue grill] Mmmm.... Look! Plump, succulent sausage. Honey-smoked bacon. And glistening, sizzling.... Aaaagh! D'oh!

    The expression on his face is classic.

    Favorite pork product? Oh my...I've really been loving ham and bean soup this fall, made it a few times so far and can't wait to do it again. Pulled pork. Sausage, in many forms. Far too many more. Truly a wonderful, magical animal.
