No smoked ham hock or ham bone?

lvdkeyes - did you ever try it without the ham/ham bone? I’ve done it many times - try it sometime

Waaaaaa!!! But I like the smoky taste.

Ok - you can use the ham/hamhock - I wouldn’t want to deprive you. But it is good without it too!

there is a ham base you could substitute for the chicken base. I use it for bean soup and it is amazing!
