Smoking a Ham this morning (first one in a while) so no rocks


Marinaded the ham overnight in Coke.. Tried this once before and gave it a real nice caramel sweet flavor. 

Starting off with a chimmeny full of charcoal and a chunk of hickory wood (soaked).

Smoker at 230?

Cook to what internal temp.

Will post pics as I go!

Is it a pre-cooked ham or a fresh ham?  Pre-cooked hams just need to be warmed 130 - 140 .  Fresh hams need to be cooked to internal temp of raw pork   165 - 170 I believe

Good luck

Sounds great cxb,

How big is the ham?

Did you inject it?

Did you temperature probe it?

So many questions---sorry.

You do know you will be getting something similar to pulled pork, which is great, but it won't be like an actual cured "Ham"?

Bear,

About 10 pounds, did not inject it marinaded it over night in the fridge in Coke.  I expect more of a smoked ham not a cured ham.

I will put the thermometer in it later when I add the second round of charcoal.

Try this glaze during the last 1.5 hours of the smoke..   I have been using this recipe for the last several years, and it makes for a very tasty finish to the smoked ham.

1 cup of honey
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 tsp dry mustard
pinch of ground cloves

It  sounds like you are off to a good start and I can't wait to see the Q-view. So I'll be checking back soon. I remember the first fresh ham I smoked for our kids. They just looked at the ham and then at me then at the ham and then me again. This went on for a little biut and then they said that's not ham, Ham in pink and that ones gray in color. Kids theses days just don't know things that we do.
