Best Polish ham since Kurowycky closed?

Where's the best place to buy a Polish ham in Manhattan (or Brooklyn) for Christmas? I'm assuming Martha Stewart's hams at Costco are similar to the ones Kurowycky sold, but is it worth joining Costco to buy a ham?

    How about Baczynsky's (sp?) on 2nd betw 9th and 10th? Polish ham not to mention decent roast beef, great kielbasa and other homemade smokey beer sausages.

        How does their fare (specifically, kielbasa) compare to what you can get in Greenpoint?

        Hi, I too was jonesing for Kurowycky at holiday time. I looked at this posting, did my research, even went so far as to call Joan Hamburg and I ended up at Steves out in Greenpoint. I have to say, it was a let down. They only had small hams (in comparison), not nearly as smokey as Kurowycky, and sort of undercooked. Hatedit. So the search continues. If you made any progress, I would be happy know about it.

          You should post this ti the Outer Borough board because the best Polish ham will be found in Greenpoint. If you stay in Manhattan you can try East Village Meat.
