Enjoy the best ham eating experience with our Hickory Smoked City Hams. Our Half Cut Hickory Smoked City Ham brings you the sweet honey & smoky flavor in a size manageable for your occasion.

We use fresh hams that are brined and slow smoked for fully cooked perfection. We then vacuum seal the half-cut ham without slicing, so that you can create the slice thickness you prefer at home.

Serve this ham at room temperature or warmed to your preference. We guarantee delicious tastes in every bite!

What is a Smoked Bone-In Ham?

It is created from a fresh, bone-in ham portion that is brine-cured, slow-smoked & fully cooked over real hickory wood chips. It has a perfect blend between sweet & savory.  The bone is not removed during the smoking & cooking process.

What Side Dishes Should I Serve with Ham? 

The flavor of smoked ham pairs perfectly with almost any of your favorite side dishes, but we suggest a potato and green vegetable side dish, along with your favorite bread & dessert to make a great tasting ham meal.

  • How to Position Ham for Heating
  • Laying the cut surface of the ham (or face) down instead of on its side when heating, will keep more of the juices in and not dry out the ham.
  • Saute some fruit (grapes, apples, figs, plums, and/or pears will work), onion, and herbs of your choice in 2 tablespoons of oil for several minutes.
  • Place saute mixture in bottom of roasting pan and position ham with cut surface down on top of saute mixture. Cover with foil.
  • Microwave honey glaze for 30 seconds until the glaze becomes thin and runny.  CAUTION: Glaze will be very hot!
  • Brush some of the glaze on the exterior of the ham.
  • Put ham in the oven for 60-75 minutes brushing ham occasionally with additional glaze.
  • Take ham from the oven, apply any remaining glaze, cover with foil, and let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Remove cloves and bay leaves and serve.
