Wow! Is that something you made? Or is it commercial?

I know this is an old thread I live in central MS and I to have trouble finding Pork belles All the local stores say they can't get it and our only local butcher cures all he gets to make bacon and sell it. So they are no help. If anyone in my area knows of a place that sells it or can get it please tell me. The couple I was able to talk the butcher out if was great. My daughter won't eat bacon or sausage from the store now. I guess that is my fault. Lol

The label says $2.85. If it's $1.85, I might have to head over there.

Hey, I'm also in Columbia. I was just wondering what place you were talking about that you found? I've heard Caughman's in Lexington can sometimes get them but haven't tried. If your place is in actual Columbia I'd prefer not to go all the way to Lexington.

I get my bellies with no skin for $2.50/lb from the U of Minnesota meat store on the st. paul campus.  Just picked up 20 pounds last wednesday.  I like the quality of the U's meat.

 

Although if i couldn't get bellies from the University, i'd get from Costco.

I have access to a Restaurant Depot, but all the bellies were skin on, or frozen from a Asian market for $2.99 a lb.
I ended up picking up 40 lbs of bellies that were oinking 3 days ago for $3.50lb. They were vac packed individually, and since it's my first stab at bacon, I froze 3 bellies, and I'm going to smoke the forth this weekend. The extra money was worth it to me for the freshest bellies I could get....

I didn't know about the U's bellies...you're in competition now! Costco just started carrying them, I've been looking in the metro area for years...now I have resturant depot, Costco, and the U...tried Asian and Mexican grocery stores, they carry them, but never in stock...for me.

I do like the convenience of skin off for bacon. That's the only problem with the ones from RD. I did get some there for the Serious Eats pork belly porchetta.
