Smoked Ham

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Busy weekend on the smoker, ham on Sat and Turkey on Christmas.  Turkey post http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/115140/christmas-turkey-breast

 

Been wanting to double smoke a ham and finally jumped in, wife was out of town with the daughter and granddaughter for Christmas and had some friends coming over.

 

Found a Smithfield ham, already smoked and ready to reheat.

10 lbs ham was put on at 2:00 and ready to eat at 5:30.  Ran the offset around 240 deg the whole time, internal temp was 135 deg when taken out.

 

Thanks for looking,

Gary

We found the John Henry Pecan rub many years ago while living in Minnesota and found that it will work on pretty much anything.  We then found a place here in Columbia MD that carried it, but they ended up going out of business.  If you google John Henry Pecan rub there are a number of places online where you can order, we usually buy in bulk because of shipping cost and share with the family back home, they can not find it locally either.  There may be other companies that make it and I usually look when I am in a store but so far no luck.

Gary,

 

I've got a couple of questions for you.

 

First, I'm looking for some John Henry's Rub too.  Can't you buy it directly from the source?

 

Second, why have you got 4 probes surrounding the ham??

 

BTW, the ham looks good!

 

Thanks,

Bobby

Bobby, the replies are in red, again thanks all for the comments.

 

Gary,

 

I've got a couple of questions for you.

 

First, I'm looking for some John Henry's Rub too.  Can't you buy it directly from the source? Type "John Henry's Pecan Rub" in google, there are quite a few places that sell it.  The John Henry company has changed their website, I could only find it in 10 lbs bulk, might have to call them.  Look at the other stores that sell it, you may be able to buy it locally.

 

Second, why have you got 4 probes surrounding the ham??   Most offset smokers have to be modified to get even temperatures from side to side.  I have made some of the modifications but have only used this smoker 2-3 times so I still am using all 4 probes just to make sure I am not sitting in a hot or cold spot on the grates.  As soon as I took that picture and I was looking good at the grate temps I put one of the meat probes in the ham.

 

BTW, the ham looks good!   Thanks

 

 

 

EDITED.  Bobby, I just did the Google search, found a number of posts on this site from other members that are using this rub, might have to try some of his other flavors.

 

Gary
