Charcuterie

I’ve been dabbling in charcuterie and such for awhile now.  Some things turn out, like the chorizo i wrote about, while others have suffered through one manner or another. I made a batch of calabrese soppressata which suffered its demise through overheating.  My last batch of salumi, however, succeeded.  Pancetta and guanciale.  From 2 pigs heads I got for free from Adams Fairacre Farms.  “We were just gonna throw em away” the meat clerk said… ugh. Why dont people get that chops/loin aren’t anywhere NEAR as tasty as cheek or head meat?? The pancetta was not rolled; I was feeling saucy.
