Well Brother I am amazed- I smoked what would be my last dehydrated - dull - dried up ham, that I smoked for thanksgiving. I was thankful that the family had no weapons. UPDATE! I read this thread and told wifey "get me a ham quick- I'ma gonna try this again, only by the Bearcarver method. I love ham and can't wait to try it - I am hungry just lookin at it. And your idea of Sammy packaging will help our budget. Great Job!!! It will be a week or so but I can't wait.
