    Well, I had one of my co-workers ask me to smoke a bone in deer ham. He provided it. [​IMG] so I said sure, i'll give it a try. I first checked all of these threads for a good brine and how to do it. Then, I said sure I'll do it.
    This thing he brought me was about 9 Lb's and frozen solid. After I finally got it thawed out it went smooth from there. Lots of Tony Chachery's cajun seasoning and hickory smoked salt. Smoked it for 9 hrs. Here are some pics.
    Started out at 630am - Beautiful morning [​IMG]

    After I cut it off the bone it filled up a 1 1/2 gal of ziploc bags. Took it to work in a crockpot and there was barely any left before lunch. So I am chalking that up to a successful smoke.
    can't wait to see what gets smoked next week. This is so addictive!! [​IMG]

    Smoke 'em if you got 'em

    Thanks for the pics Boone. Been asking about smokin venison and these are the first pics. Now I got an idea. Maybe in a couple of weeks. Got it in a vacuum bag so it'll be there when I'm ready.
