    Looks like belly to me. Either way there is def enough fat in there to low and slow it until jiggly.


      Cure it and make bacon!


        I'd cut off the meaty portion and make bacon from the rest.

                Since the word "side" was on it, my money is the butcher doesn't use the words "pork belly" he uses the words "side pork". Which is still belly.

                  +1. My wife's Mom used to cook "fresh side pork". Good stuff until the rind breaks a tooth...
