    Aren't ham hocks already smoked? I get mine at an Amish butcher and I'm pretty sure they are. (Haven't bought any this season, yet.) If so, what's the point?

    I see a mess of beans in your future. What do ham hocks go for per pound?

    @jlsm - I assume you can get them fresh or smoked, but I maybe wrong.

    You can get both ways. Just re-smoke or totally smoke. I like John's way best. Also toss in a few turkey legs when you do it.

    Big difference between commercial smoked and smoking fresh ones yourself

    @thailandjohn, no question big difference between the two. I was was getting at is the already smoked is improved by re-smoking. Just not as good. The same goes with already smoked turkey lags re-smoked not anywhere as good as smoked from raw. Way better to buy raw and so easy by following Johns way.

    I'm not really sure I can get fresh. I'll look. I use a few every winter.

  • Go to a Mexican or Chinese market that has a fresh meat department.......the next time I get hocks to smoke, I will take a picture that you can show the butcher in case he does not understand....I will also post on how I have them cut and why
