We just got our ham for this Christmas and decided to order a second one. Imagine my horror at seeing the words, "Out of Stock". I've eaten at least one of these hams every year of my life. We have a custom-made pan my sister gave me as a gift 51 years ago. We've given our children ham pans. It can never be Christmas without a Smithfield ham. We have ordered these hams at various times of the year, and never considered them to be seasonal items, altho of course they are part of Christmas. Now I'm worried that I'm about to eat my last (and maybe THE last) Smithfield ham. I sincerely hope that is not true, and I will be watching the website to see if they become available again. I may stockpile a few.

Don't forget to save every little speck that falls off into the platter including the fat. There is no waste. I save these scraps in a sealed bowl until the end. Then I grind or mince them with mustard, mayonnaise and freshly ground pepper. Stack it high on homemade biscuits. It's actually the best part.

Our family has this ham for Easter and Christmas. Without its unique, exceptional taste, those feasts will not be complete. The family looks forward to it more than any of the other dishes on the table. Everyone never gets enough of its taste even after he holidays, for breakfast, snack and dinner. Very pleased and satisfied with it.

I grew up on this ham. My dad was a Virginian and this was a Christmas staple. Every year we looked forward to it. The process of watching him cut open the bag, fill his ham-soaking bucket halfway, and lower the ham into the bucket was, as boring as it sounds, fascinating to us as children. We would literally run home from the bus stop after-school because we knew he was about to change the water. Dad passed a while back, when I was ten. I'm 35 now and I don't have kids but I follow the same process when I cook for friends and family for the holidays. It's my way of including dad at the table too.

Salt cured pepper coated hams
I grew up in Virginia Beach, VA and at least 2 times a year my mom would prepare these hams. I've been in Oklahoma for the past 25 years and nothing out here compares to Smithfield's ham. So glad I found I can order online anytime ! They are the best !

Best ham ever
I grew up in the DC metro area. Spent a lot of time in Va. We always had a country ham. Smithfield Hams are the very closest you can get to those good home cured country hams. I love them. Order as often as I can. You can't find anything like them here in Az.

Wonderful ham...guest called it a Texas Prosciutto
Called for directions from the label and was given wonderful recipe for cooking. Tasted so very good!

True down home flavor
My ham weighed 24lbs. (not complaining). Had to cut the shank off to fit it into the largest roaster pan I could find. took 10 hrs. to cook. Delicious!

This is our second year in a row buying THIS product. Being a native Richmonder (VA), we grew up on these wonderful hams. Country hams in general and Smithfield hams in particular are not available in this neck of the woods. These have the original rich flavor I know so well.

Measurement - will it fit?
This is a great ham BUT can someone figure out the length of this ham - you know this is UNCOOKED, so buyers are aware if it will fit in their cooking equipment. It will be helpful if you post the length of this ham for buyers like me.
