    Hello, being a newbie at smoking, is it possible to smoke a raw unbrined ham on my BBQ??

    I have done ribs that turned out pretty well and chickens as well but wasnt sure if just using my broil king and some wood chips was getting in over my head lol

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Yes you can smoke a raw unsmoked ham but you need to brine/cure it if you want it to turn out like normal ham.

    Yup.
    Would still be tasty but not "hammy"

    Basically if you don't cure or brine it you won't get the ham flavor you will get a pork flavor like pulled pork etc.

    Thanks for the help guys, looks like I am better to grab a precooked ham and let it smoke for a bit and work on a raw ham when i have the time to brine

    First off we need you to stop into Roll Call and then sign up for the 5-day E-course. It's free and it will teach you the basics of smoking meat and other things. But you should probally go buy an already smoked ham for this one and then take the course and then you can tackle the smoked ham. It's really not that hard either.
