We've got a 4 1/2 lb. bone in ham for New Years Day.
I use an MES 130.
2 Questions:
How long and at what temp.
I'm thinking of using maple wood chips.
I know it needs to brined.

Thats different. I was trying to figure out what you had. Jake is here now, he can help.
Lol I have no help just assumed if he was calling it a ham it wasn't some other cut he was trying to turn into a ham

Look up “ham in a hurry recipe” on google. Might be traeger or something’s site but they have a good recipe making a quick ham. I’ve used it as a guideline em before. You can brine/ cure it tonight and get it ready to cook tomorrow! Good luck

It IS a ham. I know this butcher and he sold it as a ham. He's an award winning butcher and also a client.

Most likely an uncured ham.......they are popular these days with people that can't eat nitrates.
Are you sure it's not cooked as in raw?

There are more nitrates in vegetables than a cured product has...
Generally 5-10 times as much nitrate...

My apologies to this illustrious group!

I have a cured ham. I will be adding some smoke to it.

Suggestions on time and temp for a 4 1/2 - 5 lb ham.
