spiral ham

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

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

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.

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.
