Thanks, everyone, for the comments. Sundancer7,
Thanks for the note about the red eye gravy. That is something that I don't want to leave out. Ribrater
I don't have a bandsaw but can see the value of getting a hacksaw. Either option sounds better than trying a circular saw. Nancy,
Thanks for the recommendation. I will check out Michael Ruhlman's blog and see what tips I can glean. As far as giving the ham away, I am guarding it with my life to make sure no one takes it away. OK, so maybe I would have trouble giving it away here, but someone might take it if I tried hard enough. Boyardee65,
Another good suggestion about checking out Alton Brown's techniques. What he suggests might scare me to death but will definitely be interesting. That's what I get for neglecting to watch Good Eats this week.
Again, I appreciate the help that you all have provided.
