We think pork rinds are a special ingredient. Not only because they take us right back to our roots, but because they bring people together, regardless of where they're from... or where they're going. And, friends, that's why we're proud to partner with James Beard Award Winner, Tim Byres.

Say Hello to Chef Tim

  • 2 cups Sharp cheddar, shredded

  • 2 Eggs

  • ½ tsp. Lemon juice

  • ½ tsp. Louisiana-style hot sauce

  • 1 tsp. Pimento red peppers, diced

  • 2 Tbsp. Cornstarch

  • 1 Tbsp. Water


  1. Mix the cheese, one egg, hot sauce, lemon juice, diced pimento pepper & 1 Tbsp. of cornstarch in a large bowl until soft dough forms.

  2. Roll dough into small balls and place in the freezer until thoroughly chilled, about 10 minutes.

  3. Crush pork rinds to create a breadcrumb texture and place in a small bowl. Add one egg into bowl #2 with water and whisk. In bowl #3, and add remaining cornstarch.

  4. To bread the croquets, first coat the cheese balls in cornstarch, then coat the balls in the egg wash, and finally coat with the pork rind crumbs.

  • Southern Recipe Small Batch Pork Rinds, Korean Kimchi BBQ

  • 4 medium Carrots, peeled

  • 1 Asian pear

  • 1 Tbsp. Montreal seasoning

  • 2 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 Tbsp. Honey

  • 1 Tbsp. Lemon juice

  • 3 sprigs Italian flat leaf parsley


  1. Preheat oven broiler to 500°F.

  2. Add carrots into a large cast-iron pan. Cut the pear in half and scoop out the core with a tablespoon, then place them skin side down in the pan with the carrots.
