Guanciale (we call it Uncle Charlie in the smokehouse) is the cheek of the pig which has been cured, fermented and air-dried in a similar way to pancetta.  Guanciale has more fat than pancetta, but as a result has a huge depth of flavour.  The fat is transformed by the curing and fermenting process and becomes silky and unctuous.  A cooking ingredient it is used in Italy to make the classic dishes; pasta all'amatriciana and spaghetti alla carbonara and can be used as an alternative to pancetta in any recipe.
