First question, do you want a dryer, saltier ham or a sweeter, moister ham? 

Secondly, do you want a fully cooked, fully cooked and sliced, or ham that you will cook and slice?

No matter how you answered the questions, we have the ham for you.  Let me explain:

Option 1: Drier, Saltier Ham

A Broadbent Kentucky Country Ham definitely fall in the category.  The fully cooked Country Hams Kentucky Cooked Country Ham for sale | Kentucky Derby Country Ham ( are available in Boneless whole or ½ hams, Semi-boneless whole or ½ hams or my preference- the thinly sliced ready to serve packages.  Remember these Pre-cooked Country Hams need to be sliced as thin as possible to be tender.

Broadbent Breakfast or Dinner Steaks are always the main entrée for my families Christmas Dinner.  They are a boneless, thinner cut of country ham.  Broadbent Center Cut Country Ham Steaks are a great selection as well.  Cooking instructions as provided for every package.   

Option 2: Sweeter, Moister Ham: 

That would be a Broadbent Bone-In City Ham Spiral Sliced Honey Glazed Ham | Broadbent Turkey Breast for Sale ( .  This ham is fully cooked.  It comes with complete warming instructions and glaze.  Wrapping it in aluminum foil and placing in the oven for about an hour is my preferred warming method.  Then glaze the ham and put it back in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, just long enough for the glaze to liquify.  Slicing this ham is easy, especially with an electric knife.  A whole Broadbent bone-in city ham will feed up to 25-30 people.  It is also available in ½ ham.  The leftovers make great sandwiches.

Broadbent B&B Foods

Broadbent B & B Foods, have been producing Old Fashioned Country Hams since 1909. A Truly American Food that has been on this continent since colonial days, it was a staple that sustained many of our first settlers as they moved west. The climate had to be just right to cure hams in the days before electricity, and Kentucky's climate fit the bill! Therefore, the Broadbent family brought those traditions with them and used them to dry cure and preserve their pork. Today, we are still dry curing Country Ham, Bacon, and Sausage like our forefathers did. In modern cuisine, country ham is far from a Staple. It is found on the menus of ritzy restaurants across The United States. While it is still, in fact, Country Ham, it is often cut paper thin, and labelled as Prosciutto; which is used as the center piece for many Charcuterie Boards.
