I live out in the sticks. There are two "butchers" out here. Not corner store or mom-and-pop type places. More like large suppliers of meat to the county. They sell frozen pork bellies between $5.19lb and $5.49lb in 10-12lb slabs. Is it me, or is that really excessive, especially since they're frozen and can't give you fresh ones?
I really wanna do up some pork belly this summer but those prices seem a bit excessive to me. What are you guys paying for them? I prefer skin-on to get some good cracklin on the outside.
