    Thanks but I know it's the Sierra Mist that is making it look sooo much better.

    Did you put anything on the ham, or leave it as it was. I am wanting to do one for Easter and looking for any help with a recipe, time and temp. How big was that ham. What is a guideline for timing and temp?? TIA

    This is Egrets Ham. Have done this 10+ times and it is outstanding. I like a sprial cut ham and just use my fingers to work in the maple syrup. Will do for Easter and Christmas forevere.

    INGREDIENTS:
    Maple-Bourbon Paste (recipe follows)
    10-12 Lbs. Cooked, ready to eat ham (bone-in Butt or Shank section)
    1/2-1 cup Maple Syrup
    Cherry and Apple Chunks
    Maple-Bourbon Paste
    2 Tbs Pure Maple Syrup
    2 Tbs Freshly ground Black Pepper
    2 Tbs Dijon or Honey-Dijon Mustard
    1 Tbs Bourbon
    1 Tbs Vegetable Oil
    1 Tbs Paprika
    1 Tbs Onion Powder
    2 Tsp. coarse Salt, either kosher or sea salt


    Procedure :
    1 The day before smoking, place ham in a pan flat side down. Inject in multiple
    2 locations with maple syrup (use more than 1 cup if it will take it).
    3 Smear the Maple-Bourbon Paste all over the exposed surfaces (except flat side).
    4 Cover loosely with plastic wrap and put in refrigerator until ready to smoke (You
    5 can remove ham from refrigerator up to one hour before cooking).
    Cooking
    1 Stabilize egg at 250° with plate setter (legs up) regular grid with raised grid
    2 attached. Put 3 or 4 good size chunks of wood on coals, then place ham on raised
    3 grid. Cook until internal temperature reaches 140° (this should take about 5 hours).
    4 I, sometimes, inject with more maple syrup about one hour before ham is done.

    I agree with Mic. I've made that ham several times and they are great. The one I did was just a ham.
