Pork Jowl? SNJ area

FriedClamFanatic Jun 5, 2013 09:24 AM

I buy this now from Burgers Smokehouse, but wondering if anyone locally offers it

The closer to West Chester PA/Wilmington DE the better

Ever seen it at Costco etc?

Also, I have one butcher where I can order uncut slabs of bacon, but would appreciate other sources

        any good Italian market would carry guanciale. Have you tried asking for pork cheeks? same thing different name.

        You can try Bringhurst Meats in Berlin NJ. They are full-service butchers. I know they do bacon, don't know about jowls.

          FCF, stick to Burgers, best there is, Costco doesn't carry it, I've never seen it anywhere except in a few catalogues, IMHO Burgers is the best. Chewingthethefat, here!!

            Thanks!...Yeah, so far, I tend to agree. I love Burgers products. Like most MailOrder firms, a bit pricey, but not outrageous, like some. but I gotta wonder what all these Amish/Mennonite folks do with the stuff they sell in the local markets (and from where they get it)
