Bacon Wiki
It may not be a cut of bacon, but it plays one on TV...

Jowl bacon (properly called pork jowl or alternately, especially in the Southern United States, hog jowl) is cured and smoked pork cheeks. It is not, technically, a form of bacon, but is associated with the cut due to the streaky nature of the meat and the similarity in flavor. Hog jowl is a staple of soul food, but is also used outside the United States, for example in the Italian dish guanciale.
