kurobuta ham inquiry

theconiglio | Apr 1, 2005 04:48 PM

so you all convinced me to order a kurobuta ham but i'm a little confused about the facts.

chowhounds recommending buying it whole, on the bone, already cooked.

when i went to the snake river farms site, which then linked to to another online vendor to buy their product, i only saw a 3-4 lb kurobota ham that was boneless. and it was $79.99. wow! there was no mention of a whole, on the bone roast.

so i went to berkshire meats to see what they had. on the home page they were advertising a whole hickory or applewood smoked roast ham roast for $95.00. that looks about right. except then i could find nothing identifying that it was a kurobuta ham vs. just berkshire. i say this because in the chownews this week it says, "Kurobuta hams are also now available from Berkshire Farms." they weren't before? how do you make sure you're getting kurobuta?

thank you in advance for the clarity. we're all anxious to place our order.
