Reviewer: Tristan Needham from Mill Valley, CA United States  
I came to Benton's the long way around.

Several years ago I ordered an aged Smithfield ham, and it was sublime. But the Chinese owners  decided to CLOSE the original Smithfield smokehouse in Smithfield, and my second ham was NOTHING like the first!  It could have been supermarket salt pork, for all I could tell!

So my hunt for REAL country ham began, and online searches quickly led me to Benton's.  

WOW! Hog + Salt + Smoke sounds so simple, but to achieve the divine complexity of this ham takes the dedication, skill, patience, and GENIUS of Allan Benton!

Unlike Smithfield's ham, Benton's one can be eaten raw, unsoaked, just like prosciutto.  That said, I actually prefer to slice it the thickness of bacon and QUICKLY fry it in butter, one minute per side.

It is SO delicious that I sometimes fear that my head might explode!  

Mr. Benton, I take my hat off to you!  You are doing God's work, and long may you continue to do so.

5 of 5 My Whole Ham June 9, 2020
Reviewer: Brian Caffee from Sanford, FL United States  
So I just turned 40. And I was like, “I’m gonna get me one of these big ole Benton’s hams.” Literally, no other rational thought process went through my head. So today I was greeted by smoky box of ham heaven and I am absolutely and unequivocally unequipped to handle it (like I have literally no idea how to slice or cut it or anything—and I told my kids it was a dinosaur I killed). But I didn’t give into fear, I began slicing strips off and frying them up—and now, the whole house smells like hickory smoked awesomeness. And the kids love “dinosaur” and even my wife (who hates ham) have her stamp of approval—so Thank You Benton’s!

5 of 5 This is it! April 12, 2020
Reviewer: Joshua Lowitz from Sunnyvale, CA United States  
First thing that hits you is the intoxicating smokey aroma coming from the box when it arrives.  Honestly surprised the UPS people didn't flag this thing the aroma is so incredible.  Taste is incredible.  Thinly slice it like prosciutto / Serrano to enjoy with some cheese and fruit.  Yes it is very salty, so a little goes a long way.  Careful when you're slicing, don't hurt yourself or your knife.  Very stable before slicing into it, but for the average home I recommend breaking it down with a heavy duty cleaver and vac sealing portions to freeze cause it will last you forever.  Just used the bone to make a pot of red beans and ooooooh mannnn.  Exceeded expectations and a fantastic value.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from MI, United States  
Packaging great; smoky scent even better.  HOWEVER, when you pay $78.00 for a ham based on advertising, you expect to get what you pay for.  The advertising said, "15-17lb. average."  Unfortunately, this is below "average."   Bummer.  Looking forward to tastin' this, though.  I'll let y'all know!
