standles, where are you located?

Had someone post the other day he is buying bellies for $.27 to $.42 a lb.

Maybe he is close enough to possibly ship you some.

I just placed an order yesterday.  I'm paying $1.49/pound with the skin on.  I have to order 30 pounds to get that price.
There's room for all of God's critters right next to the mashed taters and gravy!

I pay $1.24/lb for belly. The Fort Huachuca commissary has darned good meat prices, with brisket at $.99/lb and butts at about $.85/lb. I was hoping Santa would bring me a deep freeze so I can stock up, but Ol' St. Nick let me down so now I need to go buy one.

Hehe the commissary on base.  I did not think about that one.  I will check them out on Monday.

That's to bad I guess I have it good I pay .27 to .42 cents a pound depending on the market. I guess the key is to get to know someone that works in a packing house because they have what they call employee meat sales. I live in Minnesota and the town has a packing house in it and I have a good Friend that works there so he gets me the bellies. I buy 60 pound cases and another friend will get a case at the same time. I guess I got him hooked on the OBS and he made the remark "after eating meat smoked it's hard to eat meat any other way" so you could say he loves it. Good luck
