Is there anywhere local, good, authentic country ham can be purchased? We will be using it for ham and biscuits as an hors d'oeuvre.

The only country hams i've seen around here are the standard Smithfield ones. I don't know if they're good or bad. I'm thinking of ordering a whole one from Broadbent..i can't believe how cheap they are.

I haven't seen much variety around here but I think Smithfield will work fine.

I few years ago we made a pilgrimage to the Trigg Co Ham Festival in Western Kentucky and picked up a ham to bring back. We soaked it and soaked it and boiled it and roasted it but it was still really, really salty and tough. I would try doing it again bc I think we probably did something wrong. Most fun part of that trip was stumbling into a horsepull - really beautiful and awe-inspiring animals. Driving around the countryside seeing the smokehouses was cool too. That Land Between the Lakes area is beautiful.

Jason if you need a whole ham I didn't see those but YDFM had sliced Broadbent ham from Kentucky. We got three packs today of the biscuit slices but they had other styles as well.

Really? YDFM has Broadbent? Wow...i'll have to stop in to get some. But it's probably sliced thick right? I was thinking of getting one to slice like a prosciutto. Had it in NYC and it was GOOD

I can't remember what the other slice styles were called but there were different slice thickness I think. Ours look to be 1/8" or maybe just under.

YDFM has several different variety of their bacons, too, and they rock!  Very, very smoky.

I believe Ingles carries Smithfield and Clifty Farms in pre-packaged slices. I don't care for the biscuit slices because they are too thin and become crispy very fast. I prefer the 1/4" slices for biscuits. Also, with the 1/4" slices you'll have a little fat, so when it is cooked you have enough leftover grease to make red eye gravy to either poor on the biscuit or dunk the biscuit.

I just bought a "COOKS" ham.  Brought it home and made pkgs for freezer of sliced ham, a ham roast (FOR New Years Day dinner), and cubed ham for freezer and the bone I'm using for ham and pea soup.

Any ideas to use up ham leftovers besides soup? I really like having leftover ham, but this year I'm a bit stumped.

Oops, could have sworn I posted in a plain "ham" thread, not country ham. I'll poke around later and move it.

My family loves ham biscuits for breakfast. Freeze what you can't use right away and pull out a bit at a time.
