Yes, Broadbent is very good but, then, our area is known for its fine pork products. I grew up and went to school with a boy whose family, Partin, had a wonderful country sausage company. Loved Partin's sausage. They closed a couple of years ago. Another competing company, Grogan's, took Partin's over and we can still buy Partin's products. Although, I think Grogan's altered the seasoning. It's still good, but not as good as the original.
Another wonderful source for country ham products is a place called Harper's
in Clinton, KY. They've been around since Noah and have fantastic country hams, etc. They've won a gazillion competitions and do an incredible mail order business.
If you're ever in our area in September, you HAVE to enjoy the Barbecue on the River in Paducah. The air smells so good, you just want to jump up and eat it. The event is awesome.
