There’s nothing more classic than an Easter ham. At Spragg’s we offer our customers both smoked and un-smoked ham. We brine the meat with a salt solution that also contains sugar and spices. The pork legs are brined for two-weeks before each leg is put into a cotton netting and is hung in the smokehouse. The legs are smoked and cooked to 57 C over 8-10 hours and then cooled. After cooling overnight, we cut them with a meat saw into 2-4 pieces so that we can sell hams that vary in weight from 3-18 pounds. For those who want the ham flavor, but not the smoked process, we also sell a brined pork leg roast that has not gone into the smokehouse. We call these country rolls.
Here are some of our favourite glazes for you to choose from. The only hard part is deciding which one you’d like to try first!
