I love their stuff but it is so expensive and I can't get the smaller size my small family needs. I've tried to make my own but it's just not the same.
I have never had ham during the holidays that was prepared outside the home. If they had samples available in the store to promote their product, I would definitely take a taste. Otherwise, preparing a delicious home-made ham will remain my forte.

be careful with spiral hams, - its easy to overcook them, and they are dry

the cheapest of hams is usually the shank and butt portions-the shank still has the hock on it,,
the butt portion is the better value

one of the best hams is the semi-bnls half hams,,,much less bone-higher meet to bone ratio

the skinless, shankless hams are some of the best (bone in ) ones on the market), some are 14-17 lb, some are 17-19lbs and some are 20-22lb in size
you can ask the butcher to slice this if you want,,


for bnls honey hams,,, most of these have a regional vendor/flavor.... up in the northeast, buddaball, triple m, cooks, hatfield, have some nice honey pit bnls hams,,
call up the meat department and ask,,,sometimes they only bring them in on special order,,,and will give you a great deal..

always try to go thru meat departments first- they operate on much smaller margins than deli departments, and can give you a better price per lb

most all smoked hams are fully cooked,,,so when you cook them,,,you are essentially warming them up...10-12mins per lb is usually good

(i've sold thousands of hams in my day)

He was/is a stockholder in Honey Baked ham ..some of the monies the victims families couldn't touch. I suppose not good reason to punish other stock holders.

My mom loves the place. It is pretty yummy and definitely higher quality than most fast food places, but last time my mom and I went it was $20 for 2 meals. I'd just rather go somewhere that offers a nice dining room and a server.

I know!

One year, I cooked the ham at a friend's house and experimented (that means I don't have a recipe ) with adding the cherries - it was the best ham that I have ever had. A lot of tender-loving care in basting frequently. It almost makes me want to prepare ham instead of Alaskan King crab. Nah, crab for Thanksgiving and maybe ham for Christmas or New Year's day.

Yum - Honey Baked Ham!!! I just purchased a small bone-in ham for a party tonight. I went on their website and printed a $3 off coupon.

I have tried to make my own with a propane torch and my own spice mixture but its not the same. No one will receive any as part of their care package tonight

HB is the ONLY ham I will eat. Glad they don't have a store here.
