So today I am being gifted two fine pigs heads and I want to make something really nice with the jowls.

So Billy, how do you make your dry cured jowl bacon? Please please can/will/could you pleeeeeeease tell me how?

Makes 2 pounds


½ cup sugar

½ cup kosher salt

10 to 15 whole black peppercorns

4 sprigs of fresh thyme leaves

2 pounds hog jowls


1. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, salt, peppercorns and thyme. Coat
the hog jowls with the mixture, rubbing gently. Place the jowls in a
nonreactive casserole, cover, and refrigerate for 5 to 7 days.

2. Remove the jowls from the casserole and tie a piece of butcher's twine
around the middle of each. Hang the jowls in a dry cool place (it should not
be warmer than 60ºF.) for a t least 3 weeks. They should be firm and dry,
with a slight give. Slice and use like bacon or pancetta.

Can I use a fridge set at normal cooling temps or will that be too cold?

Turns out the pigs heads are frozen solid. Might just leave them frozen for now and get to them later. Nice big ones though so should get a few nice chunks of jowls to try this with Pork Jowl Bacon Recipe? 91347
