Heres one of the hams I cured and smoked.One is right out of the freezer and the other is after it was cooked.It was wonderful.

Dac, as usual-an outstanding job with that ham!!
Dacdots, do you have to cure the ham? Can you just put a rub on it and smoke it? I have a fresh ham rst, want to just rub & smoke it. Will this be a problem?

Thanks for the help.

I'd love to smoke a ham that looks as good as yours. Fantastic job!
BigAl,a ham is not a ham until its cured.If you rubbed one down and smoked it Id say it be pretty tasty but the inside of the meat wouldnt have any taste like a ham.What you would have is a big pork roast seasoned on the outside.Now is you injected it with something you could get some flavor inside.
Shellbellc,There is no glaze on the ham.We always cook them in a roasting bag to help keep in the moisture.With this type of home cured ham you really dont need a glaze unless you just want a different flavor.Myself I like the taste of the ham just as it is.
Mmmm pig meat.. Good lookin ham there dacdots. Thanks for sharing with us.
