Rated 1 out of 5 by TEENY Fatty and salty
This ham was fat all the way through by the time I cut all the fat off it was not worth buying the ham. To top it off it was very salty. I sent this to a neighbor for Easter I was embarrassed to say I sent it. This will not happen again
Rated 2 out of 5 by Dawn38 Disappointed
The ham we received was not the best quality we usually see from Smithfield. The end third was all fat around the bone. All in all we probably were able to get 4-5 servings out of it. Had we had a large amount of family present to eat it we would not have had enough. Always hate to give a bad review, but we were disappointed with this one.

Terrible!!! The amount of liquid that came out of this ham was unbelievable to me. The ham was so fatty, dry and not much flavor. It came without the seasoning packet.Save your money and get a ham from Honey Baked. I had a Honey Baked at Christmas and it was absolutely delicious. The smithfield was cheaper so i figured i would save some money. Big Mistake. Well i learned my lesson. You get what you pay for.

I am somewhat flummoxed by the negative reviews for this excellent bone-in spiral ham. I buy two a year, one for Christmas and the other for Easter. We have never had an issue with this brand or with the ham we received. My family and I prefer this line to the hams offered by the Kansas City Steak Co. and that wasn't always our opinion. When KS City first brought their spiral hams to QVC, their hams were sliced generously thick and were never salty, but the last one I bought from them was sliced so thin that we couldn't find a way to heat it up without drying it out. We actually prepare this Smithfield bone-in ham in a cooking bag because we like a hot ham and I save the glaze mix for any leftovers and prepare a delicious raisin sauce on the side. You can't always go by what the label says, for if we did that, our ham would never get hot enough for us to eat. Thank you, QVC, for continuing to bring this product to us, especially for the holidays.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Roula from Texas Less appealing than it appears to be.
I ordered early for December delivery.
I received it in a styrofoam cooler frozen solid no dry ice was left when I received it. It came packaged in a net which contained a small pocket of glaze . I placed it in my freezer since I was planning on making this for New Year's Day.
There is no defrosting directions so I removed it from the freezer the day before and let it thaw out. I placed it in the fridge overnight.
I followed cooking instructions to the letter. I weighed the ham before heating and it was over 10 lbs! I lined my pan with parchment paper instead of the suggested aluminum foil. I placed it cut side down and I covered with foil as per instructions. Heated as directed.
Decided to use the packaged honey glaze, even though I was very turned off when I read that it was all artificial. It took about two more tablespoons of water than the suggested amount to dilute to the right consistency. I brushed on the ham.
The ham was spiral cut most of the way anyway a portion of it was not cut at all. The uncut portion was the top section. There was a lot of juice in the bottom of the pan. It was not a fatty at all it was a bit dry on the outside even though it was heated covered.
However it was somewhat salty. I would say that it is saltier than I prefer. Everyone agreed that it was a bit saltier than they prefer. I tasted bits from all over the ham and the saltiest parts were on the outside. The closer you got to the bone the less salted.
I weighed the bone after cleaning it off and it was less tan 10 ounces.
I will be trying another brand before I order this again since it is more "average" than I was anticipating certainly less appealing than the announcers make it seem.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Gunnar Worst Purchase Ever
This ham was definitely not a good purchase. It was quite fatty and I was unable to get a nice slice. The texture was tough and chewy with no flavor. This will be a one time only purchase.
