    Use the search feature here for Double Smoked Ham. A few options.

    I'm pretty sure Bearcarver does double smoked hams in his MES's. So it should be possible. To prep all I do is take most of the skin off attach some pineapple with toothpick and take some of the fat that was trimmed off and stick it on top of the toothpicks. Then let her go until it reaches temp. I just did one for my Monte Christo sandwich post.

    To big to fit in a mes 40 ,,, That's a big ham .
    This is one I did with Bear's guide line . No glaze , had the fat in a foil pouch with holes poked in it above the picnic .
    Comes out real good .

    Yes as other have said, bear is your spirit guide animal for this one. I have done 2 hams following his process, with fantastic results.
