In this week's edition of "Christian's Cajun Adventures," KPLC's Christian Piekos spent time learning how to make fresh cracklin.

With the help of Jeff Benoit, owner of B & O Kitchen and Grocery in Sulphur, Christian learned the history of cracklin and how it's made. Let's just say Christian didn't leave hungry.

Send us your ideas for what Christian should try next! Send KPLC a message on Facebook or message Christian directly via his Facebook page, "Christian Piekos KPLC."

    For our Thursday, it is another hot day. The temperatures will reach the lower to mid 90s again. It will feel more like 103-105 degrees, at least for a brief time. There could be a few small showers that pop up. I have the rain chances at only 30%, though. So, not everyone will see rain. Overnight, it will be generally clear with only a few passing clouds. I do not expect any rain. It should be a nice evening if you have any outdoor plans. It will be very warm and muggy.
