Even though I totally couldn't afford to do it, I did it anyway. I love me some country ham! http://www.smithfieldhams.com/product/455/genuine-smithfield-ham It cost me $88, and I'll only be able to smoke 1/2 of it at a time in my MES. I'll put the shank in with some blackeye peas, too. Thank you for looking. I'll start another thread when it gets here.
