On October 16, we’ll celebrate World Food Day in an effort to raise awareness about the world hunger epidemic. Join us in spreading the word: Food is a basic human right just as pork rinds are a favorite Southern snack.
Food Hack #1: The Foil Fan
Make your bacon crispy without the clean up that a fry pan creates. Start by folding a sheet of aluminum foil accordion-style. Unfold the foil so the creases are still visible and then place on a baking sheet. Put the bacon on the foil rack and then cook in the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until done.
Food Hack #2: The No-Work Bloody Mary
On game day, we all go through a couple bottles of beer, so if you need a little hair from the dog that bit you the morning after, reach for the leftover pickle juice and mix it right in. Your Bloody Mary has never been easier to make.
Food Hack #3: The Potato Extender
When the craving for Chapaleles hits, you need potatoes that are as fresh as the day you bought them. To keep them from sprouting, toss an apple or two in the bag.
Food Hack #4: The Spicy Food Cheat
If you’re a fan of spicy food … but your lips aren’t, use lip balm before you dig into another spicy plate of wings.
Food Hack #5: The Steak Test
Check to see how done your steak with a simple test that eliminates the need to slice into it. Lifehacker explains this revolutionary hack.
Food Hack #6: The Perfect BLT
Bacon is fatty, so it needs to be cooked slowly and at a low temperature. Render out most of the fat and leave your bacon crispy and golden brown by weaving the strips of meat in a basket pattern. Turn the oven at 400°F and cook for 17-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the bacon. The square pattern makes for a perfect layer of bacon to be added on your BLT.
Thanks to Snapguide for this incredible recipe! Our BLT’s will never be the same … and neither will yours if you do this right!

What happened to us, men? Trail mix used to be something guys would toss in their backpacks for a hike in the Rockies … or grab a handful to keep the energy high in the gym. Now? It’s all chocolate, candies and pretzels.
Today, we take trail mix back!
Say good-bye to trail mix that has no meat to it. Get the @rudolphfoods #recipe: http://www.rudolphfoods.com/brands/rudolphfoods/pork-rind-blog http://ctt.ec/22wQc
This trail mix has protein, crunch and heartiness unmatched by the mixes you buy at the store. It’s all power and no fluff with the help of Rudolph’s Pork Rinds!
Here are our best BBQ tips and a few Southern-inspired recipes to add to the menu at your next get-together.
Tip #1: Keep your grill clean.
Keeping your grill clean allows the heat to transfer better and prevents the flames from flaring up. The best way to start with a clean grill? Finish with a clean grill.
Strike when the grill is hot. It’s a heck of a lot easier to clean, so pull out the grill brush and give it a scrub or two.
Tip #2: Be patient and wait for the heat.
We know, we know! You can’t wait to hear the silence that follows the first bite of a truly delicious burger, but if you throw the meat on before the grates have had time to get hot, it’s gonna make all of that perfectly seasoned meat stick.
And remember, as soon as you start adding items to the grill, they’re going to absorb some of that heat and cool down the grill, so start hot!
Tip #3: Don’t play with your food.
No, really. Stop flipping, pressing and poking your food. What gives most foods you grill, like these Stuffed Pork Chop Pork Rind Bombs, so much flavor is the caramelization that takes place when the they are seared and left alone.
Tip #4: Don’t walk away.
Or you’ll be running to the store for more food. Yes, we know you’re a busy cook, but we also know you’ll get hung up chopping veggies or digging for a cold one in the back of the refrigerator and that’s when all Hades breaks out with the flames.
Tip #5: Mix it up.
Everyone loves your famous ribs, but don’t forget to add a little variety. Start with easy burgers and add a unique twist, like mixing in Rudolph’s Pork Rinds. Or add different sides that can be prepared ahead of time.
Need to add a little something to your usual BBQ menu? We’ve got your back here.

Listen, we like pigging out as much as the next guy, but finding a little balance can make each bite of crunchy pork rindsthat much more satisfying.
Here are five of the easiest ways to cut back on calories during the week so you can cut loose during the weekend! It’s not about counting or measuring. Who needs that? Strike a balance and you’ll win.
Take a different approach this #MensHealthMonth. @rudolphfoods http://www.rudolphfoods.com/brands/rudolphfoods/pork-rind-blog/ http://ctt.ec/Q1cZL
Don’t eat in front of the TV. The benefits are two-fold. One, studies show you’ll eat up to 288 more calories while zoned out in front of the television. Two, you’ll get the chance to truly tune the rest of the world out and focus on your favorite show.
Count now, party later. Don’t snack from a bag of chips. Instead, count ’em out now, so you can pop open a bag of your favorite rinds this weekend!
Family-style it! Fill your dinner plate and then sit down with family and friends to enjoy your meal. You’ll be less likely to snag seconds.
Sure, we love the musical guests and the Annual Cruise-in Car Show, but what really gets our juices flowing are the endless fresh popped pork rinds.
Come and get ‘em! Hot, fresh rinds! #PorkRindFest via @rudolphfoods http://www.rudolphfoods.com/brands/rudolphfoods/ http://ctt.ec/o0Iby
This weekend, we’re calling out the big guns! Who else could host an All You Can Eat Pancake and Sausage Breakfast, a 5K Color Fun Run and an entire line up of concerts in just two days? Harrod, Ohio! Find all of the pork rind festivities and plan the best weekend now.
Grab the freshest fried rinds from Rudolph’s Pork Rinds, sit back and soak up the summer. We’ll be there! Will you?
