It's a type of salt-cured ham popular mostly in the southern United States. A good country ham is delicious, but very very salty. Incidentally, country ham makes a pretty great sandwich.

as an UK raised Aussie, "club" was my first thought, i have never heard of a country ham.. sounds like a bad actor !! (sorry Porky).... i have few problems on this site, other than overtly US-centric things like old sports stars or small towns or 50 states in 30 seconds etc ... i enjoy the challenges.. i read a lot, watch TV and movies and must absorb a lot as i go... bottom line, if you don't like these quizzes, go find another site... 10/10 Jetpunk !!!!!

Got only 17. I also got ‘long drink glass’, ‘secret code orange’, country ham sandwich’, ‘jump step ladder’. Hard enough for non-natives. I had to look up what ‘about face’ and ‘corporal lance’ were.
