    Source for Fresh Side Bacon

    I am looking for a source for fresh side bacon per Meathead's making bacon from scratch recipe. I have found no one here in north Texas that can supply it (unless I supply a hog and have it custom butchered).
    Any help would be appreciated!

    Here in Tampa, I get fresh side bacon at Publix. That being said, there are no Publix's in TX. Have you tried a large grocery store (or two) chain to see if they can order you some? It is well worth the effort


      Ditto on the large grocery store chain. Even here in Iowa that's the easiest place to get it. You may have to order a case (usually 50#) to get the best price. Do a big batch, freeze some or share with someone. Check around for price. I've been quoted near $5/pound but can usually get it for less than $3.
