Help buying Christmas Ham - Smithfield

lisaress | Dec 7, 2011 03:50 PM

I wanted to ditch the Christmas dinner idea and go out. There are only buffets in this area and I can eat about $1.50 of all-you-can-eat. so I guess I am cooking.

Anyway, I am thinking ham. I am in PA, but had an Alabama relative (now deceased) who made the most amazing ham. At the time, she said buy Smithfield. I tried that and must have messed it up and it tasted soapy. What brand shoud I buy? I need tender and juicy. Cost or prep time is not of consequence. My back-up plan is prime rib.
