I love making Pancetta!  This is the 5th one of these I have made (I use the recipe from Charcuterie by Michael Ruhlman). And it turns out AWESOME!!  I purchased the whole hog from a local farmer. The bellies look good, nice and thick and not overly fatty.




I am using the belly closest to camera for the pancetta. The other 2 halfs are going to be used for smoked bacon.

Toughest part is finding the Juniper Berries.
