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.

  1. 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.

      Thanks! Perfect timing of your post - I'm on my way out in 30 minutes.

        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.
