Justin Moore: Can You Explain “Hog Jowl?”
HOG JOWL TO CELEBRATE THE NEW YEAR?
I recently heard that Justin Moore celebrate's the New Year by eating "Hawg Jaw"....Which I believe translates to "Hog Jowl"....I have to admit...I've never heard of this before. But Justin...it just doesn't sound like something I would even want to try.
Justin's guitar player is a friend of mine from Kentucky; I'm thinking maybe I should call Roger and ask if he's ever eaten Hog Jowl with Justin? There's just something about it that seems too "REAL." A New Year's favorite? A special treat? I may have lived in the south for a time, but this isn't anything I was ever introduced to. I'll eat your fried green tomatoes, and, beans and cornbread with a bite of onion all day, but this one is all yours.
Happy New Year.
