Smoky Gourmet
Our Famous
"Preacher Ham"

Experience the unique flavor of our Gourmet BBQ Ham. The alternate to our Aged Country Ham, the Gourmet BBQ Ham is milder and has less salt content than our cured aged ham. Newsom’s Gourmet BBQ Ham has been sold through the doors of our historic country store for over 60 years.

With a unique flavor all its own, this is an alternative to the honey baked hams sold across the nation, and in this region, it has been nicknamed the “Preacher Ham” — just about the best meal you can find to serve the preacher for Sunday dinner.

For those on low sodium diets or those who find the aged country ham not suited to their taste, our Gourmet BBQ Ham is the ham of choice for you. Prepared by us and placed on a hickory pit for long hours, the smoky flavor provides a delicious alternative to even the popular honey-baked style hams. Newsom's BBQ Ham is an excellent choice if you are looking for the perfect centerpiece in a pre-cooked ham dinner.

For any holiday dinner as a platter compliment or in sandwiches, the Gourmet BBQ Ham is a delightful treat for all. Unlike fresh pit BBQ, which is limited to a barbecue setting, the Gourmet BBQ Ham is a versatile choice and suitable for picnics and outings, or formal buffets and exquisite holiday dining.

Our BBQ Ham is reasonably priced for a precooked meat to accommodate our customers with a greatly affordable product. While the ham is prepared by a Newsom recipe developed over 60 years ago, the BBQ ham contains MSG and is not a nitrate free product ...

These large hams are available Bone-In.

This smoked meat is Ready-To-Eat.
