My oldest Son will Only Eat honey ham, Normally only one Brand of store bought Honey Ham, BUT he has agreed to try a honey ham if I make it, so below is what i am thinking about doing and i would like some input from our master Ham makers. I will be using either a tenderloin or a pork sirloin roast, Most likely the latter. I will be using tenderquick because i can buy it locally as oppose to cure#1 which i would have to order online and wait on(i plan to just not right away) and TQ seems easier for a beginner anyway. I will "Brine" or "wet cure" the pork for 30 days in TQ Mixed with Either Water or Apple Juice. Maybe White Grape Juice. I plan to mix up enough solution to cover the pork then i am going to take some of the solution and mix it with quite a bit of honey and inject the pork then mix the rest of the honey in the TQ Solution. After 30 days of curing i do plan to smoke the pork with Apple wood and just a touch of Hickory Just wondering if anyone sees any glaring mistakes with what i plan to do. The Goal is a Honey ham with a Strong honey flavor backed up by smoky salty ham goodness. I am also considering buying honey powder which i can get locally at a health food store. Is there a problem with injecting the pork with a honey heavy curing solution? Is it safe to cure the ham longer than 30 days? I know the ham does not have to be smoked, but is there a problem with smoking it with a mild wood? Anything yall see that i am missing?
