Pork Belly price/lb???

How much are you guys paying per pound of pork belly?  I have only bought it once and I think it was $6.95 per pound.  Seems like I got ripped.

    The butcher I bought them from is located in a uppity neighborhood.  That explains it all.  The search will go on...

    Currently 2.59, skin on at an Asian grocery. Irregular sizes. Were about .50 cheaper last year.
  • Just like anything else, you by what they have done to it. Boneless, skinless, trimmed, etc.

    I paid a similar price my first belly purchase.  It was pretty.  

    Since then I found an Asian grocery that sells for $2.75/lb with skin on.  I got 10 pounds (came in a few different chunks) from the Asian store, and I swear it must have had a dozen big nipples!   End result was good.

    I'm thinking supply and demand? The major cities this thing is on then menu at restaurant s all over, so demand is high for it?
