Swig and Swine’s Chef Anthony DiBernardo shared this recipe for pork rinds with The Local Palate.
This dish is a staple on the Swig and Swine menu and, of course, pork rinds are a common sight in BBQ restaurants across SC; however, this is the first recipe I’ve run across adopted for the home cook.
