It’s that time once again to talk about prices on huge chunks of meat. I present to you my 2013 guide to sales & deals on Easter Hams in Michigan. Here are a couple of things to note from this year. The cheapest price on ham I found in the state was at Plumb’s – 99 cents a pound for a Sugardale Shank Portion Ham. The cheapest I found at state wide chain stores was the Smithfield Shank Portion Hams at Kroger for $1.17/lb althought Meijer was only 2 cents a pound behidn with their Cook’s Shank or Butt Portion Hams for $1.19/lb. D&W Fresh Market has the cheapest spiral sliced ham – Smithfield Honey Glazed Spiral Half Ham $1.27/lb.

As for deals, Tom’s Food Market offers $15 off any Quincy Street Boneless Ham, Spartan Ham, or Smithfield Spiral Sliced Half Ham with an additional $20 purchase. And if you are lucky to be in possession for 2,000 yes points at Glen’s you can get a free ham.

Any item marked with an (*) asterisk is the same price as it was last year

What I Use When I Bake A Ham

Here are some tools that I use whenever I am baking a ham.
1. Roasting Pan – You need something big to bake your ham in and a roasting pan is the perfect vessel. I don’t recommend not stick in this case as I always find that I still end up with burnt sugar in the bottom from my glaze. It’s harder to clean a non-stick pan without scratching it and ruining the non stick. So just go with an stainless steel that you can scrub easier.
2. Electric Knife – Makes carving the ham a whole lot easier. You don’t need something expense here. A cheap one works just fine.
3. Probe thermometer – Even thought hams come cooked most of the time, you still need to heat it up. Don’t trust the instructions that came with your hand, trust a probe thermometer to get your ham reheated to the properly temperature. I have had ham that has been overcooked, a dry ham is not something you ever want to experience.

    Ahh, the variation of the deals on Thanksgiving Turkey. I think you may need to have a Deals on Hot dogs for memorial day. Maybe not, I do like this kind of blog. I have to say, I like a spiral ham and I have a real hard time spending more than $1.50 per pound. Is a dearborn ham really worth 3.99? Kinda goes to your Paula Dean ham post. Question to you, I see a lot of kitchen stuff, do you ever cook on a grill?
