Pork Crackling Bits

Pork Crackling

The best thing about smoking a pork shoulder aside from having a smoked pork shoulder is creating  pork crackling using the discarded pig skin.

This dish is best prepared the night before right after you dry rub your pork shoulder. Using leftover pork rub and soaking in red wine vinegar will result in the perfect snack to accompany your beer or an excellent addition to a pulled pork sandwich.
