Our Hickory Smoked City Hams are carefully crafted from the freshest hams, best brine ingredients and slow smoked over real hickory wood chips for a taste that can't be easily replicated.

To create the Pepper Coated Smoked City Ham, each ham is covered with the perfect amount of black pepper after the brining process to add a little spice and enhance the natural flavor and juices of the ham.

This is a flavorful twist on a customer favorite. After the smoking & cooking is completed, this ham is spiral sliced, and vacuum packaged to ensure none of the flavor is lost!

Available in a whole or half ham sizes- whole hams are cut in half after spiral slicing for your convenience.
