    Jason, not sure I'm understanding what you are wanting to do. Are you wanting to smoke a ham that has already been cured or are you looking to cure a hog leg and then smoke it?  If it's the first, there are a number of threads on smoke cooking an already cured ham.  If your loking to dry cure one, times a running short unless you are planning on stich-pumping a leg and placing it in a brining cure for 5-7 days and then smoking it.
     
  3. I WANT TO BUY A RAW HAM NOT CURED I WANT TO CURE IT AND SMOKE THE HELL OUT OF IT BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO OR HAVE GOOD RECIPE TO USE HOW LONG TEMPS NOTHING LIKE I SAID THIS WILL BE FIRST TIME AND FIRST TIME IN THE SMOKER I JUST BUILT
     
     
  4. NOT A LEG JUST A NORMAL HAM LIKE YOU WOULD BUY TO THROUGH IN THE OVEN JUST RAW NOT CURED OR ANYTHING

    i cooked a raw ham last weekend, i used was pinapple and brown sugar, turn out great
     
  6. WHAT TEMP AND HOW LONG TO SMOKE HOW LONG DID U CURE IT
     
     
  7. With Thanksgiving just 2 weeks away, there isn't time to cure a whole bone-in ham properly....unless you can find a very small one.
    You could, however, cure a boneless ham, of a few cottage hams from the shoulder.
