Where can I buy better bacon? I would be loathe to complain about any bacon, but let's be honest, grocery store bacon really pales in comparison to what you can get at good local restaurants. I'm in Sacramento.

I don't mind buying online if provisions are made for refrigeration during shipping. I'm also in the Bay Area often enough that I could likely buy there in bulk if it was a good option.
Trader Joes sells a tasty, brown sugar variety that I like, but it's the only grocery store variety I've found so far that I would classify as good. I am on a budget. I just can't buy $15 or $20 per pound bacon, and don't have the budget or space for a meat slicer. We're also thin on butcher shops here. Any ideas on where I can get the good stuff?
