    I have already done a couple of ham threads & wasn't going to do anymore of them, but this ham looked so good I just had to take a photo of it & post it. It started with my favorite ham, a Smithfield cured but uncooked ham. I removed all the skin & fat and put it aside. Then I coated it with a mixture of: maple syrup, brown sugar, salt, pepper, onion powder, canola oil, paprika, Dijon mustard, and BBQ sauce. I don't measure any of the ingredients. I just put it all together & taste it. I try to make it thick so it stays on the ham. I smoked the ham at 225 in a pan with the flat side down in the juices. I put it on the bottom rack and put all the fat on the top rack above the ham so it drips on the ham & keep it moist. I take it to 148 IT, put a foil tent on the pan & rest it for 15 to 20 minutes. I'm sorry I don't have any of the preparation photo's, but here is how she looked ready to slice.

    Here is a link to another one of my ham threads with more details & prep photo's, the only difference was this time I added BBQ sauce to the glaze.

    That looks Awesome...I'm way overdue for a Smoked Ham!...The Kids like Ham simmered with Cabbage and Potatoes, Carrots, Celery, Onions, Etc. I'm going to have to invoke the rarely used, "My Way or the Highway" Doctrine!...JJ
     
  5. That looks fantastic. Way to go Al.  Now I'm schooled in ham. I wonder if

    there is a way to capture more drippings for a super ham gravy? Thanks Al...James

    Thanks Bear!

    That's the reason I posted this, it really had an unusual color to it.

    Hope I can do it the same next time!

    Dang Al I just clicked on the link to your Easter ham and noticed that smithfields only have to go to 148°. I just did a smithfield earlier and assumed it was 160. Guess I should've read the label or clicked your link sooner. next time its 148!
