Pancetta is a cured pork product that gives a special flavour for sure. It is pork belly that has been salt cured and spiced (nutmeg, pepper, fennel, dried ground hot peppers and garlic are often featured), and dried for about three months (but usually not smoked). I would think butter will work but the flavour will be very different.
