Does anyone know where I can get guincale on Long Island?

Fairway Market doesn't carry it anymore and I tried Uncle Giusseppe's in Smithtown.

    Salumeria Beliese on 9th ave & 28th st. (??)

    The best around.....period.

      D'artagnan makes a decent guanciale. any place that carries their products can order it for you. Birchhill Meats in Locust Valley, Wild By Nature or Whole Foods fit the bill.

        Ceriello's Fine Foods cures their own. I've bought it and it is very good. They have a store in Williston Park, though I've never been to it.

        I suggest you call first, because it is an occasional thing. I did see some in their Grand Central Terminal market about 2 weeks ago.

          If you mean guanciale (the cured pork cheeks), I don't know where you can find on LI, but if it helps I usually get it from Niman Ranch (it's excellent). If you check on their website maybe you can find somewhere local to you that carries it.
          Buon appetito!
