What city do you live in and what is the name of the store with the cheap bellies - I have a heck of a time getting it in Fallbrook but I have an office in Cypress and one in San Diego that I work from and even better, a company car with the gas paid so I am mobileI had some butcher tell me about a spot next to my house that sell it for 1.75 a pound. i haven't time to go check it out but if its true am in piggy heaven lol.
Man I need to head out that way and pick some up. I know the LA area pretty well. Raised in El Segundo area and worked in almost all areas of LA and surrounding as a sales guy.I am in south gate c.a. its about 15 min from downtown l.a. but were i got the bellies was in Lancaster c.a. at some store called viva's its a big chain market over here. i was at my sister in laws house and i stopped by the market and bingo there it was. so i bought like 5 1/2 pounds it came out to 8 bucks!!
It is getting very hard to find an old school butcher for sure anymore all the meat is processed and shipped out... We are getting belies here 2 a pound and skinned... Im such a bacon fool that we decided to raise our own hogs and in the spring will have mulefoot hod meat of my own to eat google that breed it is an actual bacon / ham hog... cant wait!!!!
Yes it is true and hard to find a good old school butcher theses days. Luckly for me I have found one and the 2.39lb is a good deal on them too. I'm in Fla and I have a butcher that let's me into the cooler so I can pick out my bellies too. You bacon looks good and I have just givin my last bit of bacon away to my cousin in NY so I'll be heading back to the butcher myself very soon.
