Check with your local butcher or an Asian or Hispanic store with a meat section. You can get a pork belly which is traditional bacon, or you can get pork sides which is thinner but has a higher ration of meat.
If that isn't available you can use a boneless pork butt to make "Buckboard Bacon" or a pork loin to make "Canadian Bacon".
