I don't really know what you mean by "American" ham.  

>Same with me for turkey. Duck I adore, haven’t had goose, can’t remember what game birds I might have had. Beef’s okay, and I’ll eat pork muscle meat. Bulk pork sausage cooking makes me ill. Lamb, oh, lamb, I adore thee. Might like mutton stew, just haven’t had any. Goat’s fine. Game mammals are fine. We had venison stroganoff for Christmas dinner over pierogi. Buffalo is too lean, but not as lean as ostrich, which will soak up so much sauce that you’d best make a triple batch if you want any sauce to remain. Had elk but not emu. Haven’t had pheasant, quail, larks, etc, but Cornish hens were tasty.

I quite liked buffalo, and ostrich.  And venison, yum!
