Redbones Pig Fest

chuck s Aug 11, 2009 02:52 AM

I went to the Redbones pig fest last night and had one of the best meals I've had there in a long time. Robert was carving up the pigs out on the street. $25 (which went to charity) got you all you could eat plus one drink. The pulled pork was delicious, the sliced pork was unbelievable but ran out quickly, even the mac n cheese was delicious.

    I enjoyed the event too, and am glad to raise money for the Somerville Homeless Coalition.

    I really liked my pork skin - but had never seen it before (and had wondered why). Does one scrape the meat off the skin to eat, or chew on bites of skin for minutes at a time (as I did, and enjoyed, but felt a little Fletcheristic while doing)?

      In NC, we chop up the skin with the meat and call it "cracklin". DELICIOUS!

      Missed it last night but been to many of their past pig pickin's, and it's always a stone groove. Nitpickers can find specifics to worry over, but as a charity event that's a fairly cheap night, overall it's great food, music, vibe.
