Can you offer related topic knowledge to contribute to group learning efforts?

Yes, I have been experimenting with making bacon from belly, capicola from the front section of loin, prosciutto from the hams, various flavored sausages from the other bits, baking lard from the leaf lard, frying lardo from the back fat and rawhide from the skins. Ive played with various forms of salting, curing, smoking, and jerking for preserving pork.
