    My mom always made a Butt end ham so that’s just what I do when I make it. I guess that isn’t a great reason, but oh well…

    I like the butt hams… I’m doing a bone in roast this year instead of ham.

    All I know is that we buy what’s from Costco, bone in, and that my mother detests spiral hams. That’s not much of an answer, though.

    Butt hams cost more per pound, but you get more meat per pound. For actual meat weight, it’s usually cheaper to buy a butt.

    Boneless if it’s a good brand, not the canned ham kind.

    I guess I don’t know enough about hams to have a preference.  I always get a spiral-sliced ham wiith the little glaze packet and they always turn out nice.

    I voted other, I like spiral sliced ham and I don’t even know what sort of ham that is, other than conveniently pre-sliced.

    I didn’t know there were different types of ham besides processed vs not processed. I actually prefer the processed. At our house we do turkey for Christmas though, sometimes with ham and tortiere, but a turkey is the constant.
