When I don't have ham I slice then quarter smoked sausage and follow the recipe as written.

Nice soup. That's not country ham, though. Country ham is salt cured. If you used it in this soup, I'm afraid it would be inedible. Way too salty. What he has in the video is just a regular ham steak. Really good, simple, inexpensive recipe.
