That's Great, JB !!
I think you'll find my method a whole lot better than those instructions on the Ham Package!!

Give an "After Consumption" report please!!

Oh my goodness. Bear-meister, I went exactly by your script and it finished about 20 minutes earlier than the time you used. it was/is so delish. even had a request for scrambled eggs and ham mixed in this morning. a delightful pairing. just enough left for three or four sammies.. thanks for your help..jb

Did my second double smoked ham. This one was a shank ham from Win-Dixie (smithfield) or first one was just butt portion from Publix.

Although still good, it wasn't over the top good like the first one we did. It is a touch salty and I sure didn't enjoy trying to figure out how to cut it down into pieces that would still produce decent slices. I have a gallon bag of the pieces I used for "self basting" plus the bone that will become ham and beans this week, perhaps after making that I will change my mind but right now we have decided we will pay the extra and do just butt portions for double smoking in the future.

It isn't glistening like it should in the pic because I forgot to take a shot before putting it in the fridge overnight. And then I bagged up one stack of slices before taking that pic. Guess I was getting tired !

Six 12 oz bags in the freezer. We had ham and eggs for breakfast, I used some for 2 more cuban sandwiches yesterday, and still enough "pieces" in the fridge for ham and eggs this AM.

Looks Great, Pete!!
Nice Job!
Each one I do, I get better at carving it.
Only tip I can think of would be once you have all the meat off, take a picture of the bone that's left.
Then save that picture for when you carve the next one.

I just did my third double smoked ham for an early Christmas gathering. It was a smash hit! Even non ham lovers carried on about it. The best part is the fact my fussy daughter asked me to do another for Christmas day at her house.

I've been wanting to do one for years but all I got from her were funny looks and No Way I hate smoked stuff. My Grandkids are already hooked.
A huge Thank You to Mrs. Bear for the glaze recipe. Perfect.

I nailed another one for Christmas day. Now it's the family's favorite.

Just for grins and giggles the next day, I looked at the hams at my local store and I found a 10 pound shank for $.49/pound. Too bad it was the only one or I would have emptied the cooler.

My wife isn't big on smoked meat, but I smoked an 8.5 lb ham on my 22 WSM over my holiday break following these general directions and she LOVED it! Enough so that she asked that I smoke a 2nd 11 lb ham for when the family came over for Christmas. Both came out awesome, though the larger ham smoked faster than the prior one (by several hours). The family loved it too so I think this recipe will be a staple around here over future holidays. We've since been using up the rest of the smoked ham making soups, sandwiches, etc... Great stuff!
