    going thru the freezer saturday morning i found this spiral ham and decided to put some smoke to it on sunday in the side fire box.

    got the temp to 220 and used apple with a bit of mesquite (normally i use hickory) wanted to try some thing different and i'm glad i did. 


    this is about 2 hours in, internal temp at 90 degrees


    this is about 3 1/2 hours in, i basted and added a light brown sugar glaze.  i pulled when the internal temp hit 145 and let it rest for about 20 minutes before slicing.

    sorry no money shots, when i got done slicing i had some unexpected family members come over and demolish everything..lol..great reviews from them with the smoke flavor.

    thanks for looking

    Great looking spiral ham, I'll have to try laying them on the side next time I smoke one. [​IMG]

    i use wooden skewers to help hold it together and pill the layers back a bit to help get smoke a bit deeper with out drying it out.

    Thanks for the tip, I have plenty of skewers on hand. 
  13. Nice looking ham i smoked a couple of hams they were not spiral cut.I couldnt tell if it picked up any more smoke flavor than it started with.Maybe its from not being spiral cut.
