Costco pork bellies

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

My nearby Costco in Sugarland started stocking whole pork bellies not too long ago Since it's closer to me than Restaurant Depot I decided to give them a shot using their bellies instead of RD. Regular price at Costco is 2.79$/lb, case price is 2.77$/lb. (what a savings!!) 5 bellies in a case and I got 2 cases, right around 98 lbs. These are packed by Swift, RD uses Seaboard packers. Both are skinless but the Swift pork bellies are beautiful, evenly cut and individually vac sealed. I'll be rubbing the down later today and will take a few pics of them, but the looks are definitely better than RD....

Would love to be able to buy skinless bellies here (Central NY) for that price
