The difference between gammon and ham is that ham is a pig's hind leg that is usually cut off the carcass and then smoked or salted for preservation. A gammon, also from the hind leg, is cured as part of a side of bacon and then cut off after wards. It may be smoked separately or it can be left un-smoked but it is not sufficiently matured to have a strong ham flavour.
