There is a small old building that houses a store called Benton's about 25 miles south of us, worth the ride.   It has been there for years sells all kinds of Country Ham, Bacon, Regular Ham, Smoked Ham in all sizes.  You walk in and you get filled with this wonderful ham and smoke fragrance.  You tell the man what you want in weight of one and he will tell you how much it will cost you.  Then he goes into the back to pick out that ham, cuts it up anyway you want it, wraps it and it is yours for a price of course.  I took a couple of pictures of the inside of it.
Benton's is pretty well known throughout the country as they do a lot of shipping also.  There was a long line of people ordering like crazy, as were we, for Christmas gifts.

  1. Shouldn't have read this when hungry just before dinner -- nothing is going to taste as good as I'm sure some of Benson's ham would taste -- love country cured ham.
