    I made a glaze I want to try out on a small picnic. I wasn't thinking and rubbed it all down with Head Country rub to set overnight. I am now getting ready to throw it in the smoker but I was wondering if I should skip the glaze now or just glazer over the rub? Not sure how that would turn out so I thought I would consult those who know best. The glaze is a seedless blackberry jam base with cayenne peppers, honey, spicy sesame chili oil, and a little bit of the usual spices like salt, pepper, garlic and red pepper flakes.

    While I am on the subject, I am thinking about starting the glaze halfway through cooking process IF I glaze at all. You think it will be fine or too long in the heat?

    Thanks

    That glaze sounds real good I would wait and put it on about 30 min before pulling it off the smoker.

    I'm with her. Smoke the ham and about half an hour away from taking out the ham then apply your glaze and that the way to that story.

    So, I am assuming that you both agree the thick rub won't mess with the glaze any?

    Thanks

    I'm with them on the glaze but it's your call as to whether it's going to be good together. You could always heat the glaze up in a pan and use it as a dippin side so you'll have it for the ham that didn't get the rub on it. I have a raspberry chipoltle that is great as a side with loin. Best of both.
