Since its maiden curing of 1947, the Phillips Brothers Country Hams family has been transmogrifying plain old pork into the Southern country-style hams that earned them the National Country Ham Association’s 2004 smoked-ham grand-championship trophy. The magic begins as each lucky leg marches through two pampering cycles of cure-mix massage and relaxation in chilled oak bins for 40–45 days. After a quick dip to remove excess salt, heroic hocks bask in dry heat for at least 25 days before their debut. Customers exercise culinary imaginations with a whole country ham ($49.95) or staple packages of Phillips wafer-thin slices ($8.99/lb.) together to construct an edible self-portrait. The Midnight Snack pack, a down-home treasure chest of biscuit-cut country ham, baking mix, syrup or jelly, and grits, begs to be assembled into a late-night buffet ($37.95). Accent savory tastes using condiments including Saluda honey on the comb ($24) and locally made jellies ($5), with varieties such as garlic pepper and raspberry brandy complementing each ham's flavor, coloring, and collection of novelty shotglasses.
