PSA: Aldi has spiral-sliced ham butts for 95 lb
« on: December 14, 2021, 11:40:38 PM »

I usually buy non-sliced shank portions, but this was too good a deal to pass up; I got a 10-pounder.  Should have waited a week, but I didn't know if the sale might have ended today (it's good until the 25th) plus they could run out.  Now I have to figure out how to cook it  :rofl:  (it's fully cooked already, but they are so much better with some color and some of the moisture cooked out.

I really like Alton Brown's "City Ham" recipe, with mustard, brown sugar, and gingersnap crumbs. I think that still ought to work.

I picked up a similar sized one, but not sliced, at my local Giant food last weekend for, IIRC, 97 cents a pound.

If they're small enough I do them in my crock pot. It wrings out some of the water but doesn't dry out the exterior like the oven can.

Must have a lot of them, they were on the front page of the Aldi flyer that came in the mail today.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

I may cook this one in the electric roaster instead of the oven.  I can finish it in the oven if need be, or with a heat gun.  Thanks for the idea (riffing on crock pot, but the electric roaster is bigger)

Well it is ham, already tenderized by the curing process, normally fully cooked, and ready to eat.

I'm thinking not so well. Pressure cooking ham bones brings out a lot of very... piggy... flavors.

I picked one up one at Aldi before Christmas for .69/#
Even though it was fully cooked and supposedly smoked, I tossed the glaze packet in the trash and slathered it with yellow mustard the dusted with a dry rub that had significant brown sugar. 2+ hours in the pit barrel over charcoal brought it to perfection.
Wife used the bone and shank for some awesome ham and beans.
