Does anybody know of any place you can order an authentic country ham in the Vancouver lower mainland area?

    Oyama Sausage Co. in the Granville Market. The best charcuterie in Vancouver, they supply many of the top restaurants in the city. I always have a long stopover there when I am in town.

      You could also try Windsor Meats on Main and 25th...

        Some of the Asian groceries might carry this type of ham. I've seen dry cured ham, whole and by the slice, at one of the larger markets in the Seattle area. American dry curied ham (e.g. Smithfield, Virginia style) is close enough to ham that the Chinese traditionally use for soup flavoring.

          Yes you should be able to find Chinese style dry cured ham in Chinatown or Richmond. I think my Grandmother gets hers from Chinatown, but unfortunately I don't remember the name of the place.
