|Itty bitty pig hair stubble reminds you that this is "real" food.|
--- The Best Stop is one of the best known meat markets around and they employ a virtual army of folks working in their kitchens as they try to keep up with the demand. When it comes to cracklin they're considered a "must stop." You need to know what you're doing when you go into the Best Stop . . . . there is a bit of an expectation (not a protocol, but an expectation) that you'll join the rather loose line that forms in front of the meat counter. When it is your turn (and someone may still be in front of you when it is your turn) a worker will come out from behind the counter and verbally or non-verbally indicate that they're ready to get what you need.
|Large and meaty chunks of cracklin.|
The cracklin are a tad under seasoned, but full of porky flavor. And, depending on how you feel about pig hair . . . . . . . . you'll either appreciate or be put off by the fried pig stubble extruding from the skin. This is real food and you're not going to easily forget it. --
