“Hey yo fat girl, c’mere–are ya ticklish?
Yeah, I called ya fat; look at me, I’m skinny
It never stopped me from getting busy” – Shock G

Your inner fat person is asking you to make this – the all-belly porchetta from Serious Eats. The recipe is perfect. Your house will fill with smoke as you blast the skin near the end. The end product does especially great chopped up in a sandwich – the various textures and fats get distributed better than if eating slices, which is so rich it can be tough to handle. I give this recipe a rating of 160 over 100.

It’s even better than getting busy in a Burger King bathroom.

Be sure to have lots of chopped up crunchy skin bits in the sandwich.

    http://www.cajunmeatcompany.com/ – My friend picked it up. If we had enough advance notice I would have called Riverview Farms, or Caw Caw in Columbia.
