Hamzilla been in the brine for awhile now. This morning i took him or her out of the brine, rinsed and cleaned well and ready for smoke. Was going to hang it in my Bradley but have it for something else today.

Rinsed well from the brine.

Going to hit it with 2 hours of hickory on the smoke setting. Then bump the heat for awhile.

Looks good Nepas. I'm beginning to think ham is my favorite thing to smoke.
