Ham - Harrington's, HoneyBaked, Burger's Smokehouse or something else?

TrishUntrapped | Dec 1, 2011 01:22 PM

Calling all ham lovers. I am lucky this year! I get to host Christmas dinner! I haven't done it in about 10 years (I usually just host a special breakfast). And because I host Thanksgiving for everyone, my sister-in-law usually hosts Christmas dinner. But she can't this year because she is moving.

But I love cooking so I am honored to be making Christmas dinner. For the main protein, the consensus of the group is they want ham. I would prefer prime rib roast, but nope we have to stick with tradition (So I make prime rib for New Year's). My sister-in-law, who does not like to cook, usually gets a supermarket spiral ham which she heats and uses a prepackaged glaze and serves with Heinz gravy.

I generally find this ham dry and would like to kick things up a notch. However, I was warned big time to keep things traditional. So no country hams, no loins of pork, no fresh hams and such. I have a wonderful plum glaze recipe for the ham, plus I will make a homemade raisin sauce on the side. (I'm also making a pan of lasagna and a small pot roast to round out the main course).

So I was scouring around the web for hams because my local supermarket doesn't offer much selection. I found three "spiral" hams that people seem to love - Harrington's in Vermont, Burger's Smokehouse, and HoneyBaked.

So what do you like and what would recommend for my group? Thanks!
