Not sure whether it's deadly, but seeing that you are already using 'yall' it's definitely going the wrong way.

Consider yourself lucky to have friends concerned about your food education and welfare.

"Southern pate" sounded like a euphemism for something different. Glad it worked out for you.

I thought pate was fatten goose liver?
That's "foie gras". And there is indeed A Thing called pâté de foie gras specifically, but there are all sorts of pâtés, many, but not all, of which use some animals' foie as an ingredient, though most often, not something's unnaturally superfatted foie. (Regular old "pork liver" is a very common ingredient.) This Wiki article is a little oversimplified and very short on historical detail, but what there is of it is reasonably accurate...

Lucky you OP!

Pâté is awesome and brawn is pretty good as well!

If you get a hankering for pork rinds and Tabasco hot sauce, then I would worry...

Wikipedia said:
The parts of the head used vary, but the brain, eyes, and ears are usually removed. The tongue, and sometimes the feet and heart, may be included. It can also be made from trimmings from pork and veal, adding gelatin to the stock as a binder. Sometimes it is made with nothing from the head.
As long as you don't eat the brains you should be fine.

Unless you're a zombie; then you'll die of starvation. :p

I tried hogs head cheese once before. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. And that was about 20 years ago. I'm still alive and kicking. Enjoy your new toys.

I used to eat it all the time when I lived in New Orleans.

For those who want brains.

Now you need to eat some pickled pigs feet and collard greens.
