Speck recipe?

Discussion in 'Smoking Bacon' started by greenfrogjames, Apr 10, 2014.

  1. I have a German friend looking for speck. I'm having a hard time finding a cure recipe and don't want to wing it as I've never had it myself.

    Any recipes you'd like to share?

    That's the best I can do, as to PA Dutch people in my area "Speck" was Leftover Fat they put out for the birds.

    It would be helpful to know what your friend means by the word "Speck". Does he want to prepare German, Italian, or even Austrian speck

    German speck covers a range of items ranging from bacon to smoked fatback. Italian speck, a specialty of far Northern region of the country known as the Alto Adige which borders Switzerland and Austria, is most commonly the boned hind leg of the hog prepared in a manner similar to prosciutto, though it's lightly smoked for an extended period of time. Austrian speck, from the far Southern region of the country is similar to the Italian version with a few subtle differences.
