What a Ham!

Decided to smoke a fresh ham for the family get together.  Used Egret's Ham recipe adding the glaze from 40 Creek Double Smoked Ham.  Squeezed 22.73 pounds on the LBGE, smoked at 250 for 7 hours.  "Why a ham that size for ten eaters?" I asked the Gaber.  "Just in case someone wanted another slice!"
I love my Italian lady's perspective on portioning.  Supplied six other families with hunks of ham for the next 3 days!

    :))  I'd be more afraid of the soldier that could toss it.

  • Tasted fantastic. Was worried I scored it too deep but that helped the maple bourbon glaze get in there. Sweated about smoking a fresh for awhile but remembered another post -'relax its not rocket science.' Very satisfied with the result.

    @Gabriegger ; I have never cooked a fresh ham before,  what kind of wood for smoke and what for internal temp?  Thanks

  • @A2Z I used apple and cherry wood chunks for the smoke and pulled the ham at 155 internal temp - @Egret the recipe was great, thanks. Plan on trying a smoked ham next
