Alternatives for pork belly

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm not able to get any sizable pieces of pork belly where I live and have been looking for an alternative.


While cutting the back fat off of the top of a boston butt today, I came away feeling like that might be a suitable substitute for pork belly. 


Does anyone know if the fatback/upper portion of a boston butt would be a suitable replacement?  Thanks in advance.

Type BB Bacon in the search bar. Uses shoulder instead of belly.
