Who sells spiral-cut hams (besides Honey Baked)?

Friend insists on a spiral-cut holiday ham. Manually doing it takes skill we don't have, especially after a couple of egg nogs. Commercial spiral cutters are strictly pro gear. Honey Baked is not our favorite. Any other retail spiral-cut hams around? Will pay for quality.

  1. Are you willing to drive? These guys are located in Peabody. I posted this article on another thread about fresh ham. My north shore friends say their spiral style ham is wonderful. It's actually sliced and reassembled but same idea.

      Love that story! Will definitely drive for the right ham. Would be great to give the business to a local indie like that.

    2. Savenors has a spiral ham on their online ordering site.

      1. Costco. Pretty darn good. I think the ham we got from Trader Joe's a couple of years ago was also spiral cut -- and it was good, too. Both come with a packet of sweet glaze that you can slather on when you heat it up, if you so choose.

          Last year, Costco had Niman Ranch hams and they were a reasonable size, i.e., not gigantic. I liked it because it wasn't too sweet and had a good texture.

            I too got a great ham at Costco last Christmas. Def. recommend it.

              I picked up a small pre-cooked spiral-cut ham from the Waltham Costco last week and seem to remember they had two varieties available. Very reasonably-priced, and pretty tasty.

          2. If mail order is an option I highly recommend New Braunfels Smokehouse: http://www.nbsmokehouse.com/

            We got a spiral-sliced half ham from them for a New Year's Day party a few years ago and were VERY happy with it (as we have been with most everything we've ever ordered from them, received as gifts, or had at their restaurant when we found ourselves in that part of TX.)

              Thanks to all for an amazing array of options: exactly what I hope for from my Chowhound friends. I recommended and was heeded on the New Braunfels Smokehouse option, will report back.

            2. Costco, I've always liked the taste.
