I had never heard of this until seeing various recipes here stating authentic versions of recipe made with Guanciale. So of course when I spied a package of Smithfield Jowl Bacon I gave it a try. This particular product seemed closest to Canadian Bacon with maybe a slightly different flavor profile. So my question is: is "jowl bacon" the same as Guanciale or are there differences in the curing/smoking?
