Egret's Ham

After looking over everything I decided that Egret's ham would best suit my family.  My wife is not a fan of ham at all and I could take it or leave it.   We went to get one but could only find one that was already hickory smoked so we had to do with this.

Put the paste on with the help of my 8 year old daughter on Saturday night and put it in the fridge for about 16 hours or so.  

image

Wanted the Ham done around 4 so I put the temp at about 300 and put some apple chunks in for smoke flavor.  This picture was at an internal temp of 90 degrees.

image

Pulled the Ham at 140 and let it rest while we prepared the other side dishes.

My wife despises ham and she had seconds and said "This is the best ham I've ever had and we could have this again"  So thanks to Egret for his Ham.    I greatly appreciate it!   It was simply amazing and couldn't stop eating especially the bark!

    We got this at a local grocery store.   Looked at Kroger as well and they only had hickory smoked ones too....Oh well :)  Still came out fabulous!

    I did one on Saturday, while the spiral cut one I did for Christmas was good, this one was Awesome! I am not a huge ham fan either but I loved it too.  =D>

    Looks terrific, Edward! I gotta try that recipe. Only ham I've ever done on the grill was BobBQN's recipe from the other forum.
