Pork cheeks when cured is Guanciale(pronounced guan-chal-lay).. or Roman Bacon. i use it in lots Italian peasant recipes. Pretty much central to anything italian that calls for bacon.. its probably saltier and firmer than what you made, but we gotta find a use for yours. :) Smoke is just another form of curing.... isnt it.

it makes a killer brown gravy with wine and mushrooom over chicken also.. it can be used in interchangeably with pancetta.. good in carbonara too.
