Smoking a ham for thanksgiving - NSFW



Need advice.

Type of Ham?
15 people - We are frying turkey as well.

I am a huge fan of the spiral cut honey baked hams. Can i do a sweet rub for the ham in the smoker? I have a salamander smoker and plan to use pecan wood.

Thoughts? anyone done this with big success?

For your troubles...



For all you ham lovers... (Paging 4LSU2)

You don't need to post pics like that on the Food Board to get help.

Most would have preferred a picture of a ham actually.

Nice. Real nice.


As for the Holiday ham, I usually purchase one that is already cured. Stay away from anything that says water added or ham and water product.

You can use one of the spiral hams from the supermarket and dress it up a bit. I turn it cut side down in an aluminum barbeque pan and inject it with a mixture of one part warm juice, one part honey, and about a tsp of cayenne pepper.

I then smoke it for about 3 hrs at around 225F.

When it comes out, I cover it in a my sugar mixture, then use the torch to glaze the sugars.

It comes out even better than a "honeybaked" because it has a better smoke flavor.

If you want my recipe for the sugar glaze, let me know and I'll post it when I get home. It is saved on my kitchen computer.

Citrus... Interesting. DO you rub the ham with the packets and lemon concentrate? Injection?

Please post your recipe. This is very close to what I'm looking for. Much quicker time as well.

Noooo, that's in my big water pan all mixed up.. In other words citrus steam is cooking the ham, and pecan wood is smoking it.

Sugar glaze mixture:

1 cup sugar - 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

Pack this around the warm ham.
Caramelize sugars with torch.

I like to cook hams like that low and slow

The real hams, I put them on my water smoker with pecan wood. Never tried the citrus steam, but I have done a sweet glaze like BRtigerfan. Good stuff!

Please post the story about that crazy chick that brought you a pineapple topped ham... Classic.

The chick came from the chive... But she is not too far from the talent I used to slay back in my younger years.
