Is there any other type than a meat pie.

Yes i know mate just toying with you.

You yanks think of a differnt picture when the word pie is coined. We think only of our staple food. The aussie meat pie.

If it's a sweet pie it will be called 'apple pie' or 'lemon merringue pie' etc. The only time you here pie by itself over here refers to meat pie. Opposite of you guys.

Yes, i'm ashamed to say that is exactly how most aussies buy not just bacon, but meat in general.

Supermarket meat is to be avoided in almost all circumstances lest we end up in a society where you don't have a local butcher that you can ask to take the skin and ribs out of a pork belly. Or do a cut that is not standard. or order a whole animal for next wednesday cut the way you want it.

From what i read on the BBQ forums that's the way you guys in the States have it in the cities and if you want a pork belly etc you need to source an asian butcher?

Does anybody but me love "fresh side"? It's just sliced pork belly.....essentially uncured, unsmoked bacon. I like it sliced relatively thick and slowly fried (I use a griddle on the gas grill) until nearly crisp.

Serve with potato pancakes and apple sauce....yumm.

I just do my own. But then again, I've spent a lot of time working in abbies and meatworks.

Butchers are in short supply here in NZ these days. It's still a four year trade, but the few old buggers left around don't tend to apprentice many people. Most qualified butchers end up going to work as boners or slaughtermen, and the only real way to make a living as a butcher now is to do on-site homekill.
There is no failure, only an increasing gradient in the learning curve. Nothing worth doing comes easy.

Never trust a man who doesn't drink booze or eat pork.

Unfortunately, that is the way the world is going. Supermarket pricing makes it difficult for local butchers to compete. We are fortunate that where we live we have a local butcher who will cut and slice to order and I will continue to support them.

Same here Tracker. I'm lucky enough to have an independent butcher down the road. They run their own slaughter house and process only locally raised meat stock. After eating grocery store chicken for so many years, it's amazing how much more flavorful a free range chicken can be.

Thats how it is in Canada for the most part, Except I recently found a local shop that does all the bulk pack stuff as well as custom butchery.
call the day ahead and you can get any cut you want, or have them butcher and pack your own pig for you.
I dont buy meat anywhere else any more.
See You Next Tuesday.

We have a large butcher/market here in town that is part of a catering supplies group. The prices are better than supermarket prices and the meat is a fantastic quality. You can buy it on trays if you want or you can go to the counter and have the butchers cut what you want, how you want.

I'm on first name basis with the guys who work the counter and a couple of the senior butchers out the back. It helps, i get my meat and seafood there except for the meat i get from farms.
