    Have doing bacon now for 2 years, and now its time to branch out to different types of bellies.  I have previously bought from a pork packing plant in Chicago, that has great prices, but would like a more ' GOURMET" type of bacon.  Have just recently tried a Kurobota belly, which was delicious ( and yes it was stupid expensive !! ) and was wondering if anyone has used Duroc or Mangalista bellies.  I have also tried a Berkshire, which was a little lean, but it could have just been that particular pig.

    Thoughts on what is best breed (s) for this next phase of bacon ?

    Happy smoken.
