    Not at all....... Better bacon at a lower price than the store.....
     
  3. I paid $3.59 / lb last week...skin on, frozen.
     
  4. They recently went up to $2.60/lb. now at a small butcher shop 19 miles from my house.

    $2.50/lb for whole bellies straight from the butcher, here in northeast OH.
     
  6. Where is everyone purchasing pork belly?  Do any grocery chains have them or do you get them from a specialty butcher?
     
  7. They have them at most of the butcher shops around me...

    The Chinese stores will have them - they sell small chunks in the case, but If you ask, they'll get you a full, untrimmed belly, w/ the spares attached and skin.  $3/lb last time I got one.
     
  9. Well..........ok..........I can't complain to much then. My price was a little higher than most.......but I guess I just paid $5.00 more for 10# of what will be a darn good product (bacon).

    Thanks..........Gary
