Well, I had one of my co-workers ask me to smoke a bone in deer ham. He provided it.
so I said sure, i'll give it a try. I first checked all of these threads for a good brine and how to do it. Then, I said sure I'll do it.
This thing he brought me was about 9 Lb's and frozen solid. After I finally got it thawed out it went smooth from there. Lots of Tony Chachery's cajun seasoning and hickory smoked salt. Smoked it for 9 hrs. Here are some pics.
Started out at 630am - Beautiful morning

After I cut it off the bone it filled up a 1 1/2 gal of ziploc bags. Took it to work in a crockpot and there was barely any left before lunch. So I am chalking that up to a successful smoke.
can't wait to see what gets smoked next week. This is so addictive!!

Smoke 'em if you got 'em


Thanks for the pics Boone. Been asking about smokin venison and these are the first pics. Now I got an idea. Maybe in a couple of weeks. Got it in a vacuum bag so it'll be there when I'm ready.
Not a problem Camocook. Thanks to everyone for the replies. Going to ST. Louis this weekend so no smoking for me.
But that's ok.
