Guanciale question

patricium | Apr 5, 2010 05:37 PM

I was able to get the jowls from the hog I bought from a local farmer, so that I can try making guanciale. One question - should you remove the skin first? Mine have pretty thick skin with some hair on it, and I don't know if that's the "standard" way jowls come from meat shops. I already located a gland that should be removed.
