sounds close...but it I would think it is still dependent on how thick the ham is....or how heavy...also if you are using tenderquick or their surgar cure....not sure if that makes a diff or not.....have not done a ham myself, but one day...bacon.....yup...applewood smoked as well....because hell you can get hickory smoked anywhere....but the applewood is sweet tasting.....yummmy......and maybe even some alderwood smoked....hummmmmmmmmmm
