What is a “Cure Master”?

What is a Cure Master? It’s a word of honor bestowed on an individual who has decades of experience understanding how to cure meats, and keeps the secret ingredients secret, so that when their product is made today, it has the same taste, texture, aroma, and flavor from years ago! At WayCo Hams, that’s George Worrell, 3rd generation Cure Master, using the exact methods of producing the finest North Carolina Country Ham passed on by Waitus Worrell, first generation of WayCo Ham Company and our first Cure Master.

Our Curing Process…then and now!

Country Ham: The “Then” image from WayCo Hams may be the past, but the way we cure our Authentic North Carolina Country Ham “Now” is the same as it was “Then”!

After being hand rubbed two times, the aging and drying process lasts for more than 100-days (versus 10 or less for the “mass” producers).

We let the flavor happen naturally. That’s why it tastes so good! WayCo Hams, celebrating 70-years of goodness!
