Cured Mangalitsa Neck

The Sausage Debauchery finished and tried his Mangalitsa Coppa. He writes:

This is some fabulous stuff! I now understand what all the fuss is about... What really makes this stuff ridiculous is it's unctuousness. Sliced paper thin, it actually melts on your tongue... Really, really great stuff.
"Coppa" is an Italian word for cured neck.

Wooly Pigs sells neck rolls, which are like the pictured piece, but with a flap of intercostal (rib) meat attached. They are produced as shown in this document - or as in this tutorial.

The Herbfarm makes a similar product from Mangalitsa. Chef Ben says it is his favorite.

Mosefund sold him that meat.
