Ham Smoke or not?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am buying a half a hog and having it butchered. The price includes smoke and cure. Should I tell them I do not want the ham smoked?

I guess it would depend if you want smoked ham....right? I'd rather just get all the meat cut into it's specific cuts and process it further myself...curing, sausage, and so forth.

I let them cure and smoke the hams. I do the rest myself. But it is your pig. Remember to ask for the skin back. It makes great pork rind pellets.

Happy smoken.

Its whatever you feel most comfortable with. I would let the butcher if its still a new thing to you. Build your way up to it. Starting with cheaper cuts. You can always double smoke the Bear way.
