Where to buy leaf lard/fatback in Birmingham, AL??

johnnystiletto | Jun 27, 2010 06:46 PM

Does anyone know where I could find fatback or leaf lard for rendering my own lard? I have tried all of the big grocery stores, several hispanic grocers, Mr P's deli (for a butcher, they do not seem to carry any "odd" cuts), and Red Pearl. Red Pearl did have pork SKIN with some fat attached, but that was about it. I have also tried a few grocery stores in the country (Etowah/Marshall counties), with no luck (though I did find smoked jowls DIRT CHEAP).

I travel to Huntsville fairly regularly, so I am willing to shop there as well.

Thanks in advance!
