Man Up With These 4 Ways to Beat Spicy Foods

So, you’ve got the #ManCave, the autographed football carefully encased in glass, and a big screen TV that showcases just how much of a man you truly are .. But a man’s man can handle the heat. Can you?

Tweet: It’s #HotNSpicyFoodDay! Man up! How to #eat #spicy foods here: It’s #HotNSpicyFoodDay! Man up! How to #eat #spicy foods here:


From Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds to Bold & Spicy BBQ Pork Rinds, we know how to seek heat. But our friends at The Kitchn can help you learn how to hide the sweating, the flushed face, and that signature fiery mouth. Their tips below:

1. Eat Slowly. The more capsaicin you’ve ingested, the stronger your body’s reaction will be. Eating slowly keeps a steady but tolerable amount in your body.

2. Drink Something Ice-Cold. Ice numbs the nerves in your mouth to the point where they aren’t activated by the spice.

3. Eat Something Rough. Crackers, bread, and rice give the receptors in your mouth a different kind of signal to focus on.

4. Build Your Tolerance Slowly. Learning how to handle spice takes a bit of determination. By eating a lot of increasingly hotter foods, you’ll build your tolerance gradually and come to appreciate the nuances in the different kinds of spice!

Grill Like the Pork Rind Lover You Are

This summer, #LetsGetSauced. We don’t mean with a dainty salad or too-tart lemonade. What you need is to fire up the charcoal and smell the scent of charred beef on the grill.

Tweet: 3 master #grilling tips from the #porkrind pit pros: master #grilling tips from the #porkrind pit pros:

Follow the ultimate man’s guide for grilling, grab a bag or two of Rudolph’s Pork Rinds and you’ll be king of the BBQ.

1. Keep the grate hot, clean, and oiled. This is the grill master’s mantra. Follow it to keep food from sticking and for world class grill marks. Before grilling, scrub the hot grate with a wire brush, then rub it with a tightly folded paper towel dipped in oil. Scrub the grate again when you’re finished cooking.

2. Grip, don’t stab. Use a pair of tongs – not a barbecue fork or, worse, a knife – to turn meat or move it around on the grill.

3. Give it a rest. Meat served right off the grill will taste tough and dry, but a post-grill rest allows the muscle fibers to reabsorb the juices, resulting in a tender and succulent cut.

Pork Rind Pork Chops
Pork Rind Lover’s Rule No. 1:
When someone asks you, “How do you want your favorite Rudolph’s Pork Rind Pork Chops?” The answer is, “Grilled … with a side o’ pork rinds.”
