Skin Skin Skin Don't ya just love it.

After reading a response Meowzart had, related to duck skin, I thought a query on all skin would be a good if not great idea.
Now I like pork skin or cracklin some of the best I've had other than my own was at Sweatmans in Holy Hill.
Duck skin is so succulent and outstanding combining just a fatty enough taste along with the crispness of the skin.
Turkey skin and chicken skin; nothing second rate about these.
I will at times save the skin from turkey, chicken, duck, pork and reheat to get the proper doneness, sprinkle with salt while waiting for the cool down period, and mmm mmm good.
So roadfooders what say you on this tasty topic.

    I like to cut the skin and excess fat off a smoked ham, dice it up & render it VERY slowly in a cast iron frying pan. When it is brown , drain well & enjoy! DELICIOUS!

    I think that the skin is the best part of the meat. I know it is not good for me, but what the heck, it tastes good.

    One of the perks when I used to do T-Day dinners was bringing the turkey back into the kitchen and nibbling the skin as I carved it. No one ever missed it......

    Glad to see that I am not the only skin lover here....... fried chicken skin is what makes me like fried chicken with bones in it.....and the turkey skin is better than dry turkey anyday...

    What a great topic!

    The skin of turkey and chicken come to mind immedietly. I like to take a large piece of the roasted turkey skin, fill it with stuffing,roll it up and cover it with gravy. The meat is an afterthought. When I bone a case of chickens I save the skin that comes off. Put it on a baking sheet, salt and pepper it and roast for about an hour pouring off the fat as you go till crisp. They make great counter snacks or grind them up and add to caesar salad.Just don't tell people its in there.

    Any skin and all skin! As I have posted before, my brother in law and I have a tradition every Thanksgiving and Christmas to trade turkey skin to see who's has the better flavor and texture. No one in my immediate family cares for it so I don't have to fight for it. My two fav's are Cornell Chicken skin and the rind from salt pork rendered, which I have been known to squander.

    Hi. My name is Meowzart, and I am a skin-aholic. I love a duck breast with the skin scored in Xs to be extra crispy. I love roasted turkey and chicken skin. You couldn't have good fried chicken with out the lovely skin. And Peking duck...that succulent meat and skin wrapped up in the crepe with the plum sauce? So incredible! And who was it that posted a while ago...RubyRose or ocdreamr I think....about going to a farmers market and finding a stand that sold nothing but the chicken skin fried crisp? That would be fantastic! Does fatback count as skin? So rich!

    Great topic!!

    I went to a pig roast recently and was anticipating yummy skin only to watch the guys preping the food THROW THE SKIN IN THE GARBAGE A few weeks later I was having some great Q at a street faire, asked the vendor for a little sample and came away with almost a pound of nice crisp moist skin.

    One of the best meals I ever had was a suckling pig prepared sorta like Peking Duck where they brought the whole piggy, somewhat flattened, out on a platter and set him on a lazy susan. You then spun the piggy and picked the cracklings off of him after which they took him back to the kitchen to chop the meat up and serve that.
    Piggy was delicious, also somewhat cute, but you know how it is.

    You're describing roast suckling pig that we Chinese traditionally serve up at weddings. The whole point of the dish is to eat skin! It's usually served with small steamed buns and some dipping sauce (usually plum sauce and chinese mustard sauce)

    Count me in for skin! The skin is the best part of fried chicken, at least around here where you can't really get great tasting chickens..and as for duck skin.. food of the gods! And then there's deep fried turkey skin...wow.. I'll never be thin..heheh

    That must have been Ruby Rose, If it had been me I would have had to move my residence to the market as I don't think I would have been able to leave

    Does eating soft crabs count as eating skin

    I have bought chicken necks for soup and then taken off the neck skin and stuffed it and baked it till crisp (sort of like a chicken caseing). Evil and yummy!

    I never would have brought this subject up myself, so imagine my joy when I saw this thread!

    Skin from grilled chicken, all crispy and herby and buttery. OMG.

    I know it's not the same, but what about the fat off a steak that's been grilled? I confess to this sin as well.

    I too admit that I am a shameful consumer of cooked skin from all sources !! (pig, chicken, fish, duck, turkey ) Good and crispy and OH so good !

    And I also love fat from a grilled steak !!! Since I usually do the grilling ... I consider it my right and duty to trim the fat from the steak. !! You know ... as a public service to the other diners and all that !

    Whenever we do deep fried turkeys, the skin is always an object of a friendly shoving match.

    Anyone else notice this when eating skin such as Duck? It is really delicious up to a point, and then all of a sudden you cannot stand to look at it, or smell it, let alone take another bite. Grease overload?

    I agree with you here! My husband will absolutley gag if he gets any type of fat especially steak fat in his mouth. By the time he gets done with a steak(no matter the cut)it looks like he chewed it up and spit it back out(sorry). It's a waste of money buying him any thing other than a piece of sirloin where he can cut his piece right out of the middle where no fat has touched. All I can do is just shake my head adn say what a waste! He'll eat fried chicken skin but only a very little. O.k. so were talkin' about a man who puts sugar in his grits. He just doesn't know what he's missin' and know one will ever convince him.

    Oh yeah, pork chops, I tell you my dog is lucky if he gets any meat scraps. Not to bring anyone down, but do we have any meat cutters on board? My step father once was a meat cutter and he told me something rather disturbing about pork....

    Here a quote from a report on Kasadela in NYC from Chowhound. It's an Izakaya place. I saw the mention of this dish and thought it should be mentioned here as well.

    "Tori Kawa - Best dish of the night. Crispy chicken skin threaded the length of 3 small wood skewers. Dollop of tasty citrus laced salt on the side. Decadent, flavorful, rich = just f'ing perfect."
