First Ham, First Turkey and some amazing looking BB ribs

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,


I just wanted to share what my family and I enjoyed on Christmas. For Christmas Eve, I smoked 3 racks of baby back ribs and a 16 lbs spiral cut ham.  It was my first ham to do and it was awesome.  I would like to find a really good glaze recipe if anyone has one???  I smoked the Ham and ribs using some Hickory wood in my GOSM.  I smoked the Ham at 225°F for about 5 hours, and used the 3-2-1 method on my ribs, except these ribs were pretty thick so I did more of a 3-2-2. I also smoked my first turkey this Christmas, it was a fresh (never frozen) 23lbs turkey from a local meat market. I injected the turkey with a mixture of melted butter and Tony's, then basted the turkey with the same mixture throughout the smoke.  I used the same hickory wood and smoker for this smoke but I let the temp come up a little bit to around 275°F.  I had to pull it out of the smoker about 4-1/2 hrs. (it was at about 150° internal) into the smoke because it was christmas morning and we had to go the inlaws.  I put it in a big roasting pan at a low temp to let it finish cooking. My first ham and turkey was a great success! Qview below. Enjoy!


















Now go wipe the drouwl off of your desk!!! :) Thanks for looking!!!

Boy, that all came out GREAT looking!!!  Makes me want to get a ham going real soon!  I've done a currant jelly/vanilla bean/champagne glaze that's very tasty, but might be too subtle unless you use a fruit wood for smoking.  There's as many glazes out there as there are rubs - trust your taste buds and go for it!

Thanks for the compliments guys.  It was all great and I got lots of great compliment even from my inlaws that claimed they have never liked smoked meats.  They left with full bellies and smiles on their faces.  I owe it all to this website.  Just about everything I have learned is from you guys so THANK YOU!
