Where to buy Ham

I'm in the South FL area. I'm planning on cooking a ham for Xmas. I was told that the Dutch Penn in Hollywood has a good ham. Anyone have an recommendation?
Thank you.

  1. Well I can tell you that Publix, at least all of them near me, doesn't carry good hams. All they have is the "Fully cooked" hams that I can't ever seem to get to taste right. I have better luck with "Ready to Cook" hams from WInn Dixie.

    I am sure it isn't up to the caliber of what you are looking for, just putting it out there JIC, you like me are a Publix Shopper.

    1. Kash N Karry has Smithfield pork products, including a variety of hams. I have been happy with them

          I'm do not like the spiral cut hams. I think once they're cut they loose juices.

        2. I've bought hams from Penn Dutch for years and they're very good. There's two locations - Hollywood just off I-95 or Margate on 441 (
