X-mas Bourbon Ham

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Well here goes my attempt at john3198's maple bourbon ham for xmas...when I started this it was actually 2:00am x-mas morning. I have a 10 lb semi-boneless Daisyfield ham that Mrs SOB gets for X-Mas from her work to start with!

Imixed the ham paste as the directions stated but did a double batch since I didn't think a single batch would cover a ham this size...I was right!

Here it is all coated and ready to sit till later...

Keep ya 'all posted

Smoker is having trouble bringing temps up. the wind is gusting 20-25 mph @ 41* outside. Today I wish I had a double burner in my smoker...Gonna have to save up for that upgrade someday! I did the first mopping,the hampaste melted into the ham and looks beautiful. sorry no pics will try next hour...Unfortunately I may have to give into the wind and finish this baby in the oven.PDT_Armataz_01_04.gif

Just did the 2nd mopping and snapped a pic...

I think I should have used a water pan today for faster recovery times. At hour #3 I will mopp a third time and bring it in to finish in the oven. what temps in the oven??? should I stay at 250* or go higher?? I dont have to push for time.... thanks for the help in advance!!

Looks good, SOB. Glad it worked out for you. We just polished off 10 lb MB ham at a friends for dinner. Sounds like you got enough time get some good smoke flavor. How long in the oven and what temp?

I don't blame her for liking it cause if it tastes near as good as it looks its awesome. Nice job PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Glad it worked out, buddy. One of the best I've tried. Nice save after the smoker went south. One guy today said after he tasted it: "I never would have guessed that a ham could taste that good". I promised to do a couple for him after the holidays.
