    Bacon from side pork?

    A local grocer ordered pork belly for me, but when I got it home, it was labeled as side pork, which I'm inclined to believe it truly is.

    Should I just proceed as if it were belly? Anything to do a little differently?

    It sure looks like it would make good bacon!

    Thanks,

    Jim,
    Side pork is another term for pork belly.
    Used more often to refer to fresh belly, instead of belly cured into bacon.

    Thanks Bob. No wonder it looked like it would make good bacon!

    And another thanks to you and Chris A. for the excellent tutorials.
