This is not your everyday, run of the mill bacon.
What is “Jowl” Bacon, then? The jowl of a pig is the muscle covering the cheek area. Smoking Goose seasons it simply with black pepper and coriander, brown sugar and maple syrup, which is used as the cure. Often used a seasoning in many dishes, jowl back is popular in the southern US, where it’s a common ingredient in many soul food dishes.
What makes this bacon so special? The overall flavor of this bacon is much richer and considerably more savory than traditional bacon. It can be eaten as the main course, similar to regular bacon, but is more often used to lend its savory qualities to the foods it’s added to.
