Kentucky Hickory-Smoked Hams
TyfY grandfather came to Kentucky
1 ^ from Virginia in 1824. It was
not long before his hams gained a
reputation for their superior flavor,
and today I adhere to his original
recipe. My hams are prepared in De-
cember, January, and February, but
are shipped throughout the year, as
long as the supply lasts.
Hickory smoking requires about forty
days. The long process of curing
results in a shrinkage of about 24% to
33% from its original weight. This
shrinkage in weight, plus the long,
laborious process of curing, accounts
for the necessity of pricing these hams
a little above the cost of the usual
meat market type.
Mold on this type of ham is like
mold on some cheeses, an evidence of
correct curing and aging, with this
difference it is easily washed off the
Occasionally in carving one of these
hams, you may notice small white
specks scattered throughout the lean
meat. These specks are nothing more
than salt and indicate not only that
the salt has thoroughly penetrated
through the hams in seasoning, but it
also implies that it is not too new.
While these white specks are not
requisite in this type of ham, they are
regarded by connoisseurs as a welcome
When baked, these hams are nearly
always served cold and sliced thin. In
the South, we usually place a ham at
one end of the table and a turkey or
other hot meat at the other end. For
buffet lunches or suppers, the ham
may be accompanied with scalloped
The best way to keep a baked ham
fresh and moist, after the first day's
serving, is to wrap it in a damp (not
wet) napkin and place it in a crock
and during hot weather, place in a
You need not cook the ham as soon
as received. It will keep for a long
period, if hung in a cool place (not
refrigerator) and kept free from flies
and other insects.
My Kentucky Hickory-Smoked Hams
are widely known for their enticing
flavor and are delicious whether fried,
broiled, or baked.
My supply of hams is limited.

THANK YOU FOR
in making this as nearly an accurate and reliable guide as possible.
Places go* out of business, new places are started, managements or
policies change. Therefore, it is necessary to issue new editions yearly.
Before using the postcard enclosed in this book to recommend a new
place, first look and see if it is not already listed in the current edition.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO GIVE INFORMATION CORRECTLY, as it
will save an enormous amount of detail work in my office. Be sure you
give the complete name of a place and that it is spelled correctly, with
full street address (or auto route number) and Post Office name of
village or town and if possible how far it is located in a given direction
from a large city.
Many times I receive recommendations for places to be included in
this book, but the information is inadequate or arrives too late to go in
the next printing. REMEMBER, IT TAKES QUITE A LITTLE TIME
FOR ME TO PROPERLY CHECK A PLACE.
Modern Guest Houses, located in the country or at the edge of a town,
or hotels and up-to-date Auto Courts away from noises, are the types
of places most desired by discriminating motorists.
Constructive criticisms and suggestions are welcome; when writing
me (on one side of paper, please) it is necessary that you be specific,
as merely stating that a place listed should be replaced by another does
not help much unless you give details. Your letters will be held in
