“These will be American hams curated from Virginia to Georgia, and like our BBQ, have been long vetted by the palate of history. There is no amount of chefy creativity that could make a better appetizer than these hams. We can take the greatest culinary minds of our generation. Pit them against the traditions of salt, smoke and time. The fight wouldn’t even be remotely fair, ham will win every time.” — Barbecue expert Tyson Ho’s Arrogant Swine will specialize in North Carolina ‘cue and country hams, in part because there’s no need for much else.
