Christmas Ham

foodnmusic Dec 8, 2009 10:48 AM

Any particular butchers in the SFV, BH, Hollywood etc area known for their smoked hams? My parents live in Sacramento and get really great one's from a meat locker in Chico but, alas, they won't ship.
Any and all suggestions are appreciated!

    If you are referring to Chico Locker & Sausage Company on E 14th, they do indeed ship.

      Wow! You guys know everything. Yes, that is the place. I spoke to them and they said they don't ship much, but are shipping someone else one on the 14th and can do it then. That made me a little nervous. I also don't want it sitting around for a week and a half or have to freeze it so I figured I would see if you guys had any local resources.

      Not local, but the best city hams I've ever tasted are mail order Kurobuta hams from Snake River Farms: http://www.snakeriverfarms.com/ .

        David Kahn knows his meat. I concur.

          Looks great! A little pricey but no different than if I was making a tenderloin, crown roast etc! Thanks for the tip.
          Still interested in something more local or "mom and pop" type if anyone has any ideas!

        The meat locker in Chico is excellent, and they will ship. Just expensive.

          San Diego has the North Park Meat Co.

          It is run by the same people as the Linkery Restaurant.
