Ham Slim Jims

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Last Friday I did a fresh brined ham on my MAK Pellet Grill. Gave a container full to my daughter. So instead of letting these 2 lbs go to waste i decided to do some MAK Hamzilla slim jims.

 

Took some ham chunks and added Tex/Mex seasoning to them.

Run em through my grinder. No extra fat or binders because the ham was already cooked.

Mixed in 1/2 cup water. Mix was pretty dry.

So i added more water, Tex/Mex and 1/4 tsp cure just for the heck of it.

Turned the MAK Pellet Boss controller to the smoke setting.

 

And stuffed away.

Put the Hamzilla sticks in the MAK side smoke box.

Got the hamzilla sticks done. Really no need to bloom as the meat was already cooked. Cooling now and will prob wrinkle up some...no biggie.

Ok

 

I will do these again except i will grind fresh ham and use a fat cut in and smoke my normal way.

 

These turned out ok but to dry for me. Taste is there.

Since they are a little dry for you I suggest you mail the batch to me down here in Florida. The humidity might help!   sausage.gif
