Question about ham

So going to do a ham so I can slice for sandwiches. But all the ones I saw at grocery store were already cooked, just needed like reheated. Is that normal?
Boom

  • That's what I've found too, but I asked the butcher if he could get an uncooked ham and he said yes.  Just give him one day.

    Nothing wrong with those. You are re-smoking them. I bet 90%+ of the hams cooked on both forums are like that. I have done lots of hams (easy cook). Egrets ham is far,far the most popular and the one I did most. But the last two I have done with nothing but smoke and we like them. Can't be an easier cook. You score the ham deep and put it on indirect with smoke at 325 for about an hour and a half.

    I am having major edit problems today on forum.

    For smoke I like a mix of pecan and cherry.

  • Awesome. Thanks for info. Now I feel better ha. It'll mostly get used for salads and sandwiches. So if only takes 90 mins or so I'll knock out tonight.

  • I'll need to buy wood chips. I only have jack Daniels right now. Might be to harsh for ham.

    Found my post for Naked Ham:A few days ago went looking for (did not know this at the time) a naked ham / smoke only. Thank you Wayne (Thirdeye)for the hand holding. Also thanks to Richard and Gary (Village Idiot)and Kent and Chubby for all the emails and calls on other ways to do a ham w/o the maple. Guys this was outstanding ham. It tasted like ham. It was a 7 lb Cooks ham (shank) and NOTHING was put on it (Nothing). Just smoke: both pecan and cherry chunks. Cooked at 300 till 145/150. I did score the ham deep.

  • In SC.
    I can get pecan from local stores or my buddy who owns a tree business. I think a local place sells cherry chips but I've never bought so not 100%.
    I feel much better about expected outcome now.
    Boom
