    Where do you guys buy your pork belly at? Every store I've been to doesn't sell it unsliced.

    hmm I will have to double check mine again because I didn't see it anywhere at my Costco.

    I just get my pork belly from a local butcher shop. Anxiously awaiting the results of this cook!!

    Local Costco usually has sliced belly in the case.  But they slice the bellies on site.  Just ask at the meat counter for one unsliced and you should be set if in stock.  FWIW-

    Ahh, will do. Ya every local grocer has told me it comes pre-sliced even from the meat dept. counter.

    I need to try this cook with pork belly!  Yours looks fantastic.  @Leopoldstoch Is the pork cured?

    Any road will take you there if you don't know where you're going.

    I can’t seem to recall where you’re from - and my phone doesn’t seem to show sig lines - but if I recall correctly you’re in DFW. If so, the Costco in Southlake is where we typically shop, and they carry pork bellies. My apologies if I got your location incorrect.

    I am east in Rockwall. I’ll check our Costco again. I probably just overlooked it.

    The ends certainly justify the means.  Looks tasty.  I'm curious about your aftermarket gasket.  What brand is that?

    Hey @TEXASBGE2018 I shop the Costco in Lewisville and I have gotten whole bellies there.  However last time I was in there they only had sliced.  But as @lousubcap pointed out you can ask them to bring you a whole one from the back and they'll oblige.

    Where I hang my hat, whole pork belly is as expensive as some good steaks...makes it hard to justify a low yield result after reducing all that fat  - but I still do sometimes because the end result is, as my grown son mentioned recently, "something this good can't be that good for you, but I can't stop eating it."

    The Latino stores here carry it, but it's less expensive and better quality at Costco.
