    Is there an adequate substitute for caul fat?  I am unable to find it in my area.

    Thanks!

    There is no substitute for caul fat.  You have to call around to different butchers to find it and if they don't have it ask them if they can special order it for you.  Where are you?

    English faggots are made with caul fat.  My English friends say there is no substitute for the caul.
