    I love these Amish Hams! They are good right out of the package but even better

    after I give them the Uncle Lar  treatment!

    This one I am smoking today, then will cool it over night and slice it and reheat 

    for Easter Morning Brunch

    I made a Honey Rum Glaze with 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup spiced rum , 1/2 cup Honey

    and  1/2 tsp ground clove. I scored the top of the ham and glazed. then gave it a light sprinkle of My standard rub

     and will smoke it over apple wood @ 225 for about 5 hours  no worry about internal temp as this

    is a fully cooked ham. I am just imparting the glaze and smoked flavor to already good ham

    I will also spritz with pineapple juice a few times during the smoke.

    Glazed and ready to smoke

    Ok Here it is after 5 hours in the smoker.

    I actually ran the smoker at about 215* not 225* like I said in my initial post.

    I glazed it twice while it was smoking and the last hour I added some pineapple.

    now it will rest in the fridge and I will slice it and reheat it Sunday morning.

    I will post some sliced pics tomorrow along with the taste results

     out of the smoker and resting
