Has anyone found bellies at Sam's or Costco? If you did, were they meaty? How was the price per pound?
 
Qgal, im in new orleans area and our local sams and costco do not carry bellys and are not interested in bringing them in either.i find the best place to go is my local grocery or meat market,these guys usually will bring in a case for me  and sell over the counter what ever i dont buy'i almost always buy the 50#case'.give it a shot cant hurt.oh and i always bring the guys behind the counter a little bacon when im done smoking it to say thanks!
 
My grocery stores wouldn't order them for me but I'll try an area meat market. Love your idea of sharing the "joy" of good bacon!
 
Old school Butchers, they frequently process Deer too, usually get whole or half Hogs in and break them down for restaurants or their retail outlet. Also check Asian or Hispanic Markets. They usually carry bellies...JJ

Got a local and the meatiest bellies, and they do deer. Gov't makes them change everthing to do deer, but that is a good thing. Good luck
