  1. Hey...WHAT cut should I buy to SMOKE SOME BACON? Just look/ask for pork belly?

    I have a Quote on my bulletin board at work....
    "BACON MAKES IT BETTER"

    that holds true for a lot of things.... ;-)

    Some of us here make bacon called "Buckboard Bacon", it's made from a pork butt. Do a Forum Search on "Buckboard Bacon" there is a number of threads on it.

    Let me know if you find any pork bellies. I honestly don't think they know what they are here up this way. I have a heck of a time finding just a plan ole brisket. Only Sams carry butts and I never seem to be there on the right day to get a couple.

    I found a few chinese grocery stores that sell little ones up here like 2 lb pork bellies but I have to order it up here. Did find a Porkbelly rib last time that I cut the rib out of that worked good too - but I think it's because we have so many chinese here now - due to Foxwoods and the Mohegan Sun.

    Buckboard bacon is a good alternative and butts are easy to find. It's almost like slided bacon sort of.
