Bet you didn't know that today was National Deviled Egg Day! Everyone has their favorite way to make deviled eggs, but don't get stuck in a rut. Remember deviled eggs are a year-round favorite.

Chopped barbecued pork is the filling's secret ingredient in this old-fashioned Southern favorite. If you want to omit the chopped pork, add a drop of liquid smoke to provide a barbecue flavor.
