Smithfield 8-9 lb. Spiral Ham w/Pineapple Brown Sugar Glaze
DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!
First of all this ham is way too pricy for its size...and it has got to be one of the nastiest hams I have ever purchased from qvc. Bought this for Easter and was absolutely mortified when I served it too my guest. No one liked it!!!!! Still have ham left, and that never happens, thank God we had other food...and none of that is left over. Wish I would have read the reviews first, we all have different taste, but my opinion this is one of the worst hams I have ever eaten....don't waste your money, you can do better by going to your local grocery store and picking one up.
Don't waste your money
I bought this ham on auto-ship , the first ham for Easter. What a waste of money! It was the driest ham I ever purchasedI don't know why David gave it a "Happy Dance." I usually buy my ham at the supermarket (at a much lower price) and can trust the brands there. I thought I would try to upgrade for a special meal for family..what a waste! Cancelled auto-ship. P.S. Also had no enclosed cooking/heating directions.
5 Stars !!!
We had this ham yesterday for Easter and it was delich !!!!
I followed the directions to a "T" and it came out just like they said it would.
I will buy again......
I served this ham for Easter to 10 people. Everyone raved how good it tasted. I did cook the ham @325 for 20 mins/ lb. I used a meat thermometer and it cooked longer then the 20 mins/ lb to reach 140 temp. I added slices of pineapple to the top. I basted the ham with the glaze pack that came with the ham. I diluted the glaze mix with more water and added some bourbon. Basted the ham 4 times in the cooking process. This ham was juicy and tasted so look good. Everyone went home with some slices and I still have ham left over for me.
Ham is supposed to be 8-9 lbs but nowhere on the package did it state exact weight as in another brand. Cooked the ham as directed and even cooked it a little less and found the ham to be a bit dry. Also not sliced very well. I wonder what the true weight of the ham is and that is why it came out dry. Will not buy again.
This was totally a waste of my money. This ham was the driest piece of meat I have ever had. I bought the two 4 lb hams last fall. The first one was awful but I thought maybe it was just a bad one. When I fixed the 2nd one later...Low and behold it was as dry as the 1st one. It was like jerky!! Needless to say I will never buy anything Smithfield from now on.
Not Worth it!
I ordered 2 hams one for my family & another one as a gift for our family friend. I would have to say that for $60.00 this ham was not worth it. Followed the directions but the quality & flavor was rather disappointing. The ham was not sliced all the way. Never again! I have had better hams from my local grocery stores.
SO SO GOOD!
MY FAMILY LOVES THIS HAM. I MAKE IT EVERY EASTER. IT IS SO EASY AND IS NOT OVER SALTLY AND HAS A FANTASTIC FLAVOR! IT IS A STAPLE IN MY HOUSE AND MY FAMILY LOOKS FORWARD TO SMITHFIELD'S HAM. I ADD EXTRA PINEAPPLE SLICES AND IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL. BEST HAM!
This is the best ham I have ever ate just heat and eat the best thing about this ham is it's very low in salt !!!!
I've had better
I was dissapointed with the ham. It was OK at best. The spiral hams I've baught at my local supermarket are better and about half the price
I bought one of these and found it to be nothing special. It was kind of fatty and not cut all the way through. I was very disappointed. I definitely won't buy another. The spiral cuts from the grocery store are actually better than these and cost a lot less.
Ham is just OK
I ordered this ham for Easter. It was packaged very well and arrived frozen. Everyone seemed to like the ham, at least there was no complaints. The ham tasted ok, but I prefer a more smokey flavor. It was not salty, in fact it had a slight sweet taste. I am happy for the large bone because I use that for pea soup or boiled dinner. I gave this ham 3 stars because I felt the slices were cut too thin making it difficult to place slices nicely on a platter. I did not use the sauce as we like ham just the way it is. This was an ok ham, but I have had better hams in the past. I felt this ham is rather pricey too.
