pork jowls in boston?

Anyone know where I can buy pork jowls in Boston?

I've asked butchers in the north end, the folks at meat house brookline, and (tried) to ask Kam-man and C-Mart, even local stop and shops, but they told me they have everything but that one cut.

Closest I got was the butcher in the north end, who said I'd have to order a whole case of them. I'm okay buying a few of them, but a case is just too much for me to handle.

I have yet to try savenors butcher shop due to both their inaccessibility and the fear of price per pound.

I find it pretty crazy that this cut is so hard to find, I can find pig tails, ears, knuckles, neck bones etc, but when I ask for the jowls (which I understand is pretty popular down south) I get these crazy looks and people say it's impossible to get / not in their distributor catalogues.

Any help out there?
