Re: German Carbonara
Pork belly is what is used to make bacon, so if you've ever made homemade bacon, you've smoked pork belly. We've done that several times. In fact, we may be making some soon, as I need to pull a slab of pork belly out of the freezer for Asian pork belly buns. Depending on how big it is, some may get made into speck or bacon, we'll see.
I believe fat back is what is used to make salt pork, at least good quality salt pork. I need to order some fat back from our heritage pig source, central Florida, because I want to make Lardo, just need to get the marble box made that I need.
