Agreed. New Orleans and Seattle are among my favorite cities to visit. Both have great food scenes.

I've never tried fried, chitlins are boiled around here. I tried them once. Interesting experience. As others have noted, it is a taste that is rarely enjoyed by anyone who has not grown up with them. Even though I had only had one bite, it was also a taste that lingered for several hours. I doubt I would try boiled again, but would be willing to give fried a taste.

Bruce,
Actually, we fry, boiled chitlins. Boiling/simmering them for a few hours gets them tender before frying. To be honest, I'm not much into boiled. My parents generation boiled/fried them in the kitchen, which left an lingering aroma for hours in the house. That was probably a throwback from my grandparents generation and the change of housing designs down here in the south. Houses then had detached kitchens. It helps a lot if they are prepared much down wind of where they are eaten .

My generation was into boiling and frying them outside, much like fish fries and crawfish boils are popular down here now. My generation is dying out, I haven't been to a family/friends chitlin fry in about 10 years. Maybe, I should try to restart that tradition. There is only one local "catfish house" in my area that still serves fried chitlins. But, that is only about a couple of weekends a year around the holidays.

You may be right it being an aquired taiste, but I think it is mostly a mindset type of thing. Heck, a few weeks ago someone on this site actually called one of my favorite southern delicacies squirrel ,a "tree rat" .

Fried, really is a great! way to enjoy chitlins. I chit you not .

After eating quail I recon I'd give the squirrel a go. Stuck in a restaurant with a knife and fork ... The squirrel must have more meat on it.
Now with chitlins ....never tasted them. From my google searches it sounds ... Ar.... Interesting? There is a certain bravado in their preparation and cooking.
A bit further up the intestinal tract. The navy use to serve tripe and onions. As a caterer it was a nightmare. The old guys demanded it, the young guys would not eat it. Next meal though, a bit of chicken booster and encase that tripe in pastry.... Chicken pies! The young guys loved them. You put on steak and kidney to satisfy the old guard.
Same these days. You buy a frozen beef lasagna. Contains 25 per cent pure beef. Which bits? You don't ask, do you. But I'm sure they don't throw the bits away that are furtherest from the middle of the beast. Lips and arseholes are certainly not on the stated contents list !
I must apologize to any lovers of frozen lasagna...sorry
Regards dave

And there is nothing wrong with chomping on the extremities Dave. Offal is just becoming trendy and those of us who were brought up on it smile a little. The reality food shows that are making it popular are doing the old hands no favour at the checkout though.

Milk gut or curly gut was popular in the cattle camps. I assume that it is similar to chitlins.

All good, depends what you are fed on as a child.

Gulf maybe a Chitlin topped pizza might be the rage . I am on the trailing edge of the generation that used everything from nose to tail which like Greenman said is becoming trendy again. I was in Buenos Aires a while back at a restaurant with a huge parrilla where they would serve gigantic portions of four legged animals and the first question the servers would ask is do you want the outside or inside of the beef or a combination of both

Well the chitlins I had certainly tasted like "chit" (don't ask how I know what chit tastes like).

DJ,
Are you still out there . Kick off is @ 3:35 CT tomorrow. I need just a little bit more of a confirmation than "some kind of bet is in order" .

Nothing personal, Just business .

Seriously, If the chips or chits ain't acceptable, I'll go with a with a surprise bet at the dollar amount that you set. I'm not too terribly worried though, since the Saints game plan is to wear freakin ear plugs .

My bad Gulf! Sorry, I was out all day. We're on! I'm not sure what the item is on my end, but we'll go with in-kind, meeting your approval. You want to say $20 limit?
