Great Price on Bellies FYI

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Just an update , I was at a Cash & Carry (smart and final) and they currently have frozen bellies (skin On) at $ 2.49 lb average 15lbs (for any that might be able to take advantage) my first two buy were in the $3.29lb range. open them and many have great meat to fat ratio it appears. plus they are dated, my last one was only a week old from processor.

.

now have that stacked40lbs +or- waiting on sale of loin (Canadian) and thanks to all the advice and information available here I will be doing this shortly, will update with Q-view

 

many years of smoking everything it will be the first bacon, if it was not for this neighborhood I still would not be where I am at and so again thank you all for the help and encouragement.
