Whether you’re cooking for a Holiday Dinner or just looking to make a delicious meal for your family, baking a LGCM Ham is a great idea. We sugar cure our hams and smoke them with a special hardwood blend smoke in our own smokehouses. All you have to do is heat your ham up in your oven, slice and enjoy!
