Smoking a ham?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to smoke a ham? We usually cook these on a weber but after getting the smoker, I thought we may give it a try. My wife would like some bean soup so I need to get a ham bone to throw in along with some ham for added flavor. I tried to search on ham, but nothing came up. Thanks for the help.

Yes alot of us do it. what type of ham are you referring too? fresh, precooked, shank portion, or home cured?

Last year I smoked 10 24# whole bone in hams for thanksgiving (Korn Top) brand. These are already smoked hams and I just resmoked them and brought the temp up to about 140-145 degrees. They were excellent and got great reviews from everyone that got one.

We purchased a Farmland Hickory Smoked shank ham (half) about 7-8 lbs. We figure on having a ham dinner and making soup with some of the leftovers.

That sounds like a precooked. Just put it on the smoker at 250-ish for a couple hours...bring it to serving temp, and you'll have alot better- MORE smoky flavor. That's what ya want, right?

Here's a previous post on precooked ham. I always save my ham bones for beans. YUM!!! If you ever decide to cure your own let me know.

Thanks for the link. I never gave it much thought about curing my own, but I do plan on trying some bacon after I get finished building my house.
