Birmingham...Best choice of cured meats

Is Whole Paycheck, er uh Foods my best bet for a large selection of Italian cured meats? My contribution to this year's Thanksgiving.

    Unless Bettola is willing to sell theirs, it's the best I've seen thus far. The black truffle salami I got at Whole Foods a couple weeks back was very good.

        Check out V Richard's, too. They have some nice cured meats. Is that guy from Bettola still planning to open a salumeria?

          Yes, it is going in the space next door to the restaurant. But construction has been running way behind schedule.
