Great Price on Bellies FYI

Discussion in 'Bacon' started by oregon smoker, Jan 28, 2015.

  1. Just an update , I was at a Cash & Carry (smart and final) and they currently have frozen bellies (skin On) at $ 2.49 lb average 15lbs (for any that might be able to take advantage) my first two buy were in the $3.29lb range. open them and many have great meat to fat ratio it appears. plus they are dated, my last one was only a week old from processor.

    .

    now have that stacked40lbs +or- waiting on sale of loin (Canadian) and thanks to all the advice and information available here I will be doing this shortly, will update with Q-view

    many years of smoking everything it will be the first bacon, if it was not for this neighborhood I still would not be where I am at and so again thank you all for the help and encouragement.

    I have a belly from Cash & Carry sitting in Pops brine. Another long 13 days before it goes on the smoker....may grab another one next trip to town.
     
  4. it was a post to let everyone them availability to the sale. ultimately I will do a brine as well as a dry rub due to our needs then compare my wife is very sensitive to sodium but I have gotten way much help in this endeavor (too many to thank) but thank you. will post as we go.
