    Hi Folks, 

    I have been trying to find whole pork belly so that I can try my hand at makin' bacon. I have tried a few of the local supermarkets without much luck. I am only able to find belly that is already cut and packaged. I saw that some of you are making some killer looking bacon[​IMG]  and would love to know where you go to get your belly from. I live in Anaheim (Disneyland)  and would be willing to drive, but the closer the better. 

    Thanks for the help

  4. My local "asian" market stocks various Snake River Farms cuts and they don't mind putting in an order for a full brisket when I want.

    If you don't mind traveling to North San Diego county, you can get them from T & H meats.

    Look for boutique meat markets like Lindy & Grundy too.
