The Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries mandates that pork designated as “Kurobuta” must consist of 100% Berkshire animals. Snake River Farms gourmet hams strictly adhere to this requirement. Our animals are treated humanely and are raised on small family farms without hormones using a natural slow feed process.
Review and Rating and Preparation of the Snake River Farm Kurobuta Bone In Ham
Overall, the Snake River Farm Kurobuta Ham is extremely tasty and perfect for any great outdoor barbecue and cooking adventure. The ham is packed full with great flavors and if you smoke the ham you will add another layer of awesomeness to your ham. Even though the price point is a bit high for a ham, I know that once you purchase your ham and then place it in your smoker and share it with your friends and family you are going to be considered the best barbecuer in the neighborhood I promise!
There are many great ways to prepare a Snake River Farm Kurobta Bone In Ham, but when I prepared mine I think that I might have found the easiest and the best way to highlight the flavor of the ham. For the preparation of the ham I did a two step process which if you follow will led you to the best results:
- Step #1: Fire up your smoker and get the internal temperature to a steady 250 degrees. Remove the ham from the packaging and place right into the smoker once the smoker gets to 250 degrees. Leave the ham inside the smoker for approximately three hours or until the internal temperature of the ham reaches 100 degrees. While the ham is in the smoker, head inside and pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Step #2: Using an insta-read thermometer measure the internal temperature of the ham and once the internal temperature reaches 100 degrees carefully remove the ham. Place the ham inside your oven. Remove the ham once the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
