This spicy meatball will become one of your staples.

We're sinking our teeth into Southern food master and Food Republic contributor Chris Chamberlain's spectacular new cookbook, The Southern Foodie's Guide To The Pig. Suffice it to say, this beloved cuisine is centered around one animal in particular: the one country ham comes from. Packed with facts, recipes and more important hog knowledge, this book is one every lover of ham, bacon, pork, hocks, face, ears, tail and the rest of the mighty pig should own.
