1. Cook the salt pork slowly, stirring frequently, until lightly browned.
2. Sift together the cornmeal, baking powder, soda and salt.
3. Mix the eggs, buttermilk and two tablespoons fat from the pork. Drain off remaining fat and reserve.
4. Add the liquid ingredients to the cornmeal. Add the salt pork cracklings and stir until the cornmeal is dampened. The batter should be stiff enough almost to hold its shape when dropped from a spoon.
