Having the friday after Thanksgiving off, and the she beast being pre-occupied with Black Friday, left me unsupervised. It was the perfect opportunity. Smoked up a Butt Ham and some Buck Board Bacon. The hardest part was waiting the 3 days for the Ham to rest and mellow. I was waiting for a delivery of vac seal bags before I cut into it so that turned into 6 days. I finally started cutting into it tonight. I loved it but thought it could be a tad sweeter. The She Beast thought it was ok. but she's not a fan of cold ham. At Her suggestion I cut a few steaks and heated them in a skillet for our dinner. That changed her mind ( no small feat ). By Proclamation from She Who Must Be Obeyed, I am not allowed to modify the recipe in the least. She went from rolling her eyes at the mere mention of the ham I was making, to drooling like Pavlov's dog, just that fast. Neither of us can remember ever having a ham so tender. Her words were " Best ham I've ever had".
The Buck Board Bacon will have to wait til tomorrow night.
Thank You daveomak daveomak for the fantastic step by step. And Thank you chopsaw chopsaw for the hand holding encouragement and your offer on the STPP.

Now you know how good it is .
Her words were " Best ham I've ever had".
This has been said in Dave's post , mine , and others , because it is that good .

I am not allowed to modify the recipe in the least.
Again , been said , and I don't think you can improve on the original . I was doing 1 a month for awhile . Trimming the coppa out of a butt when making sausage . You'll be making them alot now .
Glad it worked out , I knew you would love it .

Thanks for the Like, Chop.
I was skepticle. I knew many had said "Best ham I ever had" but I am a bit passionate about ham. I don't buy the most popular ham here because I find it downright bland. I'm in it for the flavor and I seriously think it's the best seller because it's the cheapest. My former favorite is too pricey.
This is a game changer. I now have a new favorite.

Gonna have to give that a try. Usually can't find a good tasting ham.
