Were you able to sell the smoked ham as a "cottage industry" product, I.e. caveat emptor with little regulation? I wonder if the same could be performed for cold cured meat products. My girlfriend sells her homemade cookies alongside her ceramic art, and if I recall correctly she said as long as it bears a label with the ingredients stating: "not produced in a US blah blah inspected facility", and she collects no more than 25k net profit, she's right as rain.
