Alternatives for pork belly

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.
