    They look nice from what I can see in the pics.  Around here that would be a good price.

    Can't wait to see you finish up!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Omak I have been trying to get Belly`s around here for over a year. A friend of mine told me about a guy in a very small town about 18 miles from me that made custom sausage that I did not know about so I contacted him and he was able to order it for me and he told me anytime I needed any to just call him...You might try some of these small guys around the back roads...

    We have the same situation here Dave, no butcher shop in this county.

    I think the only way I can get them is to drive at least 1 hour away & buy a full case.

    I have a pork belly in the freezer but not doing anything with it until I read up a bit and see how this is done.
     

  12. Have you checked with Publix? They will bring in whole hog so I'm thinking they would bring in some pork belly if requested. I know some store, depending on the demographics of the neighborhood, carry fatback and such.

    Its been smoking for 8 hours and the pellets are just 1/2 burned...and the temp has not gone over 98*. No added ice or anything...The temp should start dropping back down as the outside temp is starting to drop...[​IMG]Fried Catfish, Shrimp and Beer for supper !!!
