    I'll pass. Nastiest stuff I ever tried to eat, next to lutefisk and grits.

    I'm sorry, I have no idea what a chitterling is. Must be because that critter doesn't survive this far north or we call the animal something else.

    I have always boiled mine with an onion or two and a little garlic. Best if served with hot sauce and greens :D

    You call them chitterlings? We always called them chittlings. And I pass to, I eat high off the hog, not low off the hog :p

    :haha: :haha:

    Actually, the CORRECT pronunciation is "chitlins". The first part of the word is code for what used to go in 'em.

    Are you inferring that chitterlings are hog intestines? If so, I guess that I like my chitterlings stuffed with bratwurst sausage, grilled on the Weber, with a cold Leinenkugals in my hand.

    Amen Brother Cabin.. That's the only way this Southern boy is going to eat them. Scraped, clean , scraped and cleaned again and filled with a nicely seasoned sausage grilled to prefection accompanied by a cold adult beverage. Could never understand the need to eat boiled pig guts.

    I ate a pigs bung hole that was fried like a big onion ring and it was not too bad but I have smelled chitlins cooking and no way am I going to put something that stinks that bad in my mouth. Now roadkill, let me think about that!

    I ate enough when I was young, there'll be no more for me thanks. Ate my share of brains too, I don't think it helped.

    I was told the bung hole was a more desireable part as he only had one!
