Col. Bill Newsome Aged Country Ham
If you have someone that loves curred meat, I highly recommend they try some authentic country ham. There is really no place in Milwaukee to get the good stuff. You could call country ham America’s prosciutto but 100 times better. One place you should order it from is Kentucky’s Col. Bill Newsome Aged Country Ham. The smoke, cure and aged the hams the old-fashioned way and with no chemicals. They offer many great products that will bring the taste of the south to Milwaukee. Plus a good glass of bourbon pairs very well with the ham. Check out these items:
