The Charles Henry Gray Ham is the most deliciously cured country ham you have ever put in your mouth! Pre sliced & cooked, it looks beautiful on a platter as the main attraction on your holiday table! Your guests will all rave over it & easily serves 50-70 for ham biscuits with lots of leftovers for you to slice & freeze.

Nothing But The Best
This ham is the best ham a shopper can purchase. This ham is always the talk of a dinner event.

Superlatives are not Enough!
I tasted this ham when visiting Smithfield Virginia years ago and have never forgotten the mouth-watering smell and taste. I've ordered one for this year's family Christmas and I can't wait to hear the raves from my brothers and their wives.

Ham what am!
I've been a Smithfield Ham fan all of my life; I'm 78, Virginia-born, but living in NYC. While a lifelong Smithfield ham fan. Your Charles Henry ham blew me away, and I've been ordering the slices for years. Now, however, they're no listed/shown in your catalog. Are they still available. The whole ham is too much for my wife and myself, and the Charles Henry Gray slices are nearly perfect.
Owner Response: Thank you for your kind words Mr. Wright! The Charles Henry Gray Party Slices are not in our catalog this year, but you can still purchase them on our website while supplies last. They are Item #2781. You can order online, or give us a call at 1-888-741-2221 to place your order. Thanks again from your friends at Smithfield Marketplace!

For 15 Years - Only Henry Gray!
For over 15 years Smithfield's Henry Gray Ham has been the only ham to sit on my Thanksgiving dinner. Collard greens, dressing, turkey, candid yams, giblet gravy, fresh green beans, cranberry sauce and Smithfield's Henry Gray Ham -- the only way to eat on Thanksgiving!

Best Dam Ham!
I am a traditional Smithfield consumer from 2 generations ... We've soaked and slow cooked over night for decades using my father George Archer's recipe. My wife and I decided last Holiday season to get the CHG fully cooked Smithfield Ham....I tell ya it's the best tastin Dam Ham I've eaten in all my years and plan to get another this season. Mr Grey, Smithfield , a lesson in perfection.

Simply THE BEST cured ham
I have always loved cured ham. I heard the name "Smithfield" from my grandmother throughout my childhood - she wouldn't bother with any other brand. This is one of the best examples of "You get what you pay for" I've ever seen (tasted)! Served this last Christmas, and it completely stole the dinner conversation - and everyone fought over the leftovers (even the bone)! Go ahead . . . LIVE A LITTLE!

BEST HAM IN THE NATION
I was given a gift pack with the Charles Henry Gray Ham a couple years ago. I had always heard of this ham, but had no idea that the rave reviews were actually more under-rated than I could have ever imagined. This is by far the best ham in the nation, maybe in the world. I wanted to buy some slices myself, but was again very pleasantly surprised to get another gift pack of the same delicious CHG ham. What a legacy Mr. Gray left behind, when he left this recipe to be truly enjoyed for centuries to come.

We wait all year for this!
We order this ham every year for Christmas! My 18 year old son, the oldest of our four children, INSISTS that we get one every year! We serve it at a party for 25-30 people and have plenty left over for the week. DELICIOUS!

Worth every penny
Ham is not one of my favorites but we didn't have one for Thanksgiving and I thought we should have one for Christmas. This ham was such a big hit! Even I enjoyed it. It was beautiful and delicious! I wish the bone had been cracked so it could have been broken, saved and used for soup or something else good.

My son presented a Charles Henry Gray to me for a gift at Christmas. We served it at a large family gathering New Years Day. The ham was wonderful and enjoyed by all. Of particular interest to me is the heritage aspect of this ham, quite unlike the modern product of today. Certainly an experience I would recommend!

This is the most amazing ham ever! We purchase one every year for Christmas.

the talk of the town
I purchased a whole CHG ham for our MOM's 90th birthday, served at a reception for about 100 persons, also served shrimp, beef, BBQ, but the talk for a whole year has been the CHARLES HENRY GRAY HAM by everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!
