Pork Belly - Florida

Discussion in 'Smoking Bacon' started by robp421, Jul 10, 2013.

  1. Anyone in the Tarpon Springs area know where to buy pork belly?
     
  2. I am not in your state. But most butcher shops can at least order you some belly. It may take a week.

    Happy smoken.

    Welcome Robp421! Restaurant Depot sometimes has them frozen in cases as well. RD membership is free as long as you have a EIN (your own corporation) or you could use your employers if you tell the boss you'll make him some food :)

    Also check out the link that JckDanls07 posted..we have a really good time at the gathering!
     
  5. I've had a hard time finding here in North Carolina but, Whole Foods actually carries them here...only draw back is the price my last batch was 4 something a lb...You might have good luck at your local farmers market.

    Good luck

    After being out of bacon for a month, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered to bellies from the meat market in Clinton, WI,  Can't wait till Thursday to pick them up and experience sticker shock as the price has gone up to $3.59 a pound.  The family prefers my bacon to the store bought brands.  It may be expensive but it is worth it in the end!
