    Coursey's is my favorite simply because I lived in NW Arkansas off of what was county 254 from '72-81, after that I've been here in VA, I ate Coursey's meats whenever my dad went up to St Joe to get it which was about once a month, the Hickory smoked bacon and ham is so strong that the smell of it cooking can over power the smell of Jet engines :) I get the bacon every now and them when my mom sends it to me or when I order it from Coursey's myself, I have friends here that smell it and come over to my house to see whats going on, they taste it once and their hooked too :)
    Coursey's Smoked Meats is the best in the world. I should know I've been around the world three times

    The absolute best smoked meats in the world. I really love their packages of smoked seasoned meats for cooking turnip and mustard greens and black eyed peas, the best taste in the world. I always stop going to Little Rock from Kansas City spending hundreds of dollars for smoked and sandwiches. Plus their $1 bags of smoked cheese and meats snacks are awesome for traveling. I have turned my whole family on to Coursey's and I have been buying from them since 1980.

    For several years my wife and I have stopped at Coursey's while traveling through Arkansas. We always get some ham and turkey for us and family members. It is our special meal for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Everyone brags about how great it is. Now, we are making our way there once again on our way to Branson, MO. It will be one of our favorite stops along the way as we enjoy the scenic mountains of the Ozarks.

    Been traveling for 25 years from home to Clinton AR. for the Chuck Wagon Races. Coursey's is on my route. It is a must stop! The best ham ever! And priced well below the competition! It truly is great.
