substitute for salt pork?

I'm making a recipe for New England clam chowder that calls for Salt Pork.
I can't seem to find Salt Pork anywhere. Is bacon a reasonable substitute?

  1. Bacon is fine.
    Worked in a restaurant and used only bacon and their clam chowder was the talk of the town at the time. .

    1. If you don't mind the smoke flavor try smoked ham hocks or turkey wings. BTw, I find most chain supermarkets have salt pork.

      1. IMHO, bacon is better.
