    a little late getting this posted, but here's the ham I did for easter. It was a raw cured ham. I injected it with straight apple juice, and then smoked over apple chunks to 165. On easter morning I reheated it to 135 wrapped in foil in the oven. It turned out REALLY good. nice and moist, and very flavorful. Thanks for checking out my uber-late easter Q-view.

    Better late then never! That looks real good, I got to try one sometime. Did you soak it before smoking to get some salt out of it?

    didn't soak it. Just thawed, injected and smoked.

    Good lookin Ham. I have smoked several now and swear I will never purchase another finished, store bought ham.

    Quick question-where do you get your apple wood from? I have been looking high and low for apple but cant find at any local stores...

    I got this at an ACE Hardware in Omaha, Ne when I was passing through. I've also seen it in Menards here. I'm sure someone who's more local for you can give you some ideas. Other ideas I've heard is to call tree services and ask, or watch craigslist, &/or put a craigslist or classified ad after a big storm someone might have a tree go down they'd let you haul off for free.
