What to do with Pork Jowl?

Source: Culinaryarts via Google Images. In a recent order from our favorite pork supplier “Babes in the Woods” we decided to get a special cut of piggy. The JOWL! The jowl, also known as the cheek, can be a tender and delicious cut of meat when prepared properly. My first experience with pork jowl was during a culinary adventure at Eola, with my friend the “Super Fox.” It tasted like a delicious spare rib; tender and glazed with a sweet Asian sauce. It was my favorite tasty nibble from that meal and I have not forgotten it since.

So here we are with this beautiful cut of jowl and no idea what to do with it. So I have begun gathering ideas and recipes from the internet. Here is what I have so far.
