Fat back, aka back fat, is, well, fat from a pig's back. It is delicious. It can be rendered into lard, salted for salt pork, and cured for the Italian charcuterie, lardo.

Also, if you're awesome, you'll eat it fried as chicharrones. If you're my friend, you'll only eat 4505 Meats chicharrones, because they are the best and I am STOCKED up.

Hat tip to the one and only Sir-Mix-A-Lot (who incidentally played a Halloween show on campus during my college years) for the classic caption.
