Sometimes half a ham is just enough. This peppered ham is cured with the same seasonings as Arkansas' traditional smoked hams, with one special addition: a flavorful mix of cracked black pepper and brown sugar, which is painstakingly rubbed on by hand before smoking. It imparts an intense flavor with just the right amount of spice. Succulent and smoky, peppery and sweet.
- Fully cooked
- Simply heat and glaze, if desired

UPON THE ARRIVAL OF YOUR HAM
Your ham will ship frozen. Please expect some thawing to occur in transit. If you are serving your ham within a few days, we suggest you defrost under refrigeration (24-48 hours). Your ham will keep indefinitely in the freezer; however, we suggest you enjoy it within 6 months to guarantee its' superb flavor.
SUGGESTION FOR WARMING YOUR HAM
Your ham is fully cured and smoked very slowly over hickory coals. While it will arrive ready to eat, we think warming enhances the flavor. Allow your ham to sit at room temperature for 1-2 hours before heating. Remove ham from plastic outer covering, and place on a rack in a roasting pan. Add 1/4" water to the bottom of the pan. Bake uncovered in a slow oven (300-325 degrees) for 10-12 minutes per pound. You may cover the pan loosely with aluminum foil for the last half hour of heating. Let rest, uncovered, for 20 minutes before covering.
Complete heating instructions will be included with each delivery.
PACKAGING & SHIPPING OF YOUR HAM
As a perishable product, your ham will be shipped frozen and placed in insulated packaging to ensure it arrives in perfect condition. To ensure freshness, we ship our hams on Mondays and Tuesdays for arrival Wednesday through Friday. Some states require express delivery due to time and distance from our shipping facility. You will be notified during the checkout process if your delivery address requires upgraded shipping service.
