Cottage Ham

Cottage Hams rule!

We get more questions about this favorite cut than anything else! So what is a cottage ham anyway?

A cottage ham is a boneless pork shoulder that has been cured and smoked. They are typically 2-3 lbs in size.

First, we bone out the pork shoulder, then place it in a brine. A brine is a curing solution. We cure our cottage hams for 3 days.

Once they are removed from the brine, they are placed in the smokehouse. Here they hang for half a day and take in all that smoky goodness.

Once meats are smoked, they will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator.
