I do. Farm-cured, salty, fried up good, with sides of cathead biscuits, spoonbread, greenbeans with fatback, and redeye gravy ladled over the whole thing. Sweet tea on the side, and peach pie for dessert.

Just sayin.'

Carry on.

Only Smithfield hams. Belief in any other hams is heresy. False idols, all of them. And don't give me any of this deist crap. You either believe in a real ham or you don't. No hedging bets.

How offensive and stupid can you get? I'll have you know that Sander's Butterball Ham not ONLY comes from the one and only true people of the ham, but is also well over a thousand years older. (I know. I put dates on everything before I stick it in my fridge.)

A false belief in smithfield hams can only lead you to that dark door, behind which lies only tofu turkey. Be warned, sinner, and repent.

You're wrong, all of you. If you want the best country ham you have to get it from Burger's Smokehouse in California, MO!

Smithfield? Well, I used to own stock in Smithfield and they have a good commercial ham . . .

I would refer you to some other sellers of hams, but many of them are only open a few months of the year in the fall. Those are real hams.

No doubt, you worship alongside false fruitcakes, as well. Thousand years old! Pffft!

Try a Claxton Fruitcake. You'll see the light. I GAUR-ON-TEE IT!! (or you'll die, but that works too)

Fruitcake is actually just a mildew that appears inside tin containers when left alone long enough...

Try Rice's Country Ham in Mt. Juliet. They're only open from October to December. They will ship anywhere you want.

I'm certainly glad to see the faithful members of the First Church of Country Ham have shown up for services. We'll begin in a moment, but first we need to pass the plate...of COUNTRY HAM.

And Dawno, if you feel you must move this thread, then you must. The flock will understand.

I would eat it in a house, and I would eat it with a mouse
I would eat it in a box, and I would eat it with a box
I would eat it in the rain, and I would eat it on a train
I would eat it here or there, say, I would eat it anywhere.
I do so like Country ham and sweet tea. Thank you, thank you gravity

That's what I was thinking also when it landed in Office Party. Seems like Derek moved it here, but there's just enough foodie talk to think our Cooking forum would be a good place to discuss ham in all of its many splendorous forms.

Yeah, that means we're moving again, so please bring your tray to its upright position, move your seat backs all the way forward and place your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye, 'cause it's gonna be a rough flight with no guarantee of survival!

Alley, you should share that red clam sauce recipe in this forum some time. I've made it so often I have it memorized, and it's delicious.

Maybe we can start an Italian Cooking thread or some such and share recipes of the divine with our friends here. :)

If you have it handy, Silver, you're welcome to post it.

An Italian cooling thread? That'll make me hungry every time I see it. I offered to marry a woman on another forum when she mentioned she was a great Italian cook (and with her name, I believe it). Unfortunately, she said her husband wasn't too fond of the idea.

The best time for country ham is Christmas morning, served with biscuits, fried eggs and sliced tomatoes. I've been eating that every Christmas morning for as long as I can remember. My step-dad always buys a country ham just for that morning.
