Homemade spiced meat roll

After reading Søren from GASTROmads delicieous recipe for homemade spiced meat roll and the fact that have just purchased a half pig which contained a pork belly, I decided to post my own version of this Danish classic.

Spiced meat roll (literally rolled sausage) is a classic danish lunch meat, and it is not difficult to make at all. You get a lot more taste out of the homemade version instead of the supermarket version. You need about 4 days before it is ready to serve, but most of that time is just waiting.
