MSP: Where to buy real bone-in Country Ham?

I want to make a grilled country ham with redeye gravy this weekend. Does anyone know
where I could buy one in MSP? Should I try Husnik's? (I'm in St. Paul) I'd be willing to go
anywhere within about a half hour's drive.
You could try Cracker Barrel. They are spendy, but authentic. The kind you have to wash before using. I think there is still one in Lakeville I believe right off of I-35. I'm not sure about other locations. You may want to call them first about price, etc...
Every now and again I think that Everett's in Minneapolis carries them. They may be able to point you in the right direction even if they don't have any right now.
i'd try ready meats. you can also order them at the farmer's markets but you'd probably need a little more time, and they often come frozen.
thanks all. I pretty much figured out that I wasn't going to find one without ordering a little ahead. I just used a regular country ham, marinated it in coffee,
sour cherry juice and some other stuff and put it on the grill. I cooked it in a foil pan and used the basting juices for the redeye gravy. Not bad. Grilled ham is a nice change and it seems fall-like somehow...
