I live in what I'd say n.central Fl. North of Orlando and south of Ocala. Been looking for a couple of pork bellies to cure. I found some at a meat market in Leesburg, but they were on the small and thin side. I also found some at south Marion meat market. They ran around 15lbs (skin on) and looked nice, but at $8.59 per pound that makes for very expensive Bacon. Was wondering if someone knows of a good source for bellies. Thanks for the help in advance. Van

Can't you guys in Florida get pigs for free? I heard they are running around everywhere down there!
You should also check into the locality of any meat packers. I get mine from a local processing plant that sells them for around 2 bucks a pound (skin off). I wasn't aware of their existence until someone clued me in. Just something to check.
