Cherry Cola and Honey Glazed Ham (pix)

Love this time of the year for the fact that turkeys and hams go on mega sale.  We got this ham for 15 bucks and a turkey for 5 bucks yesterday at Food Lion.  Made the ham last night.  Pretty simple...very similar to the Pioneer Woman's recipe FOUND HERE.  Except I used Cherry Cola and also added some Honey.  And the fact that I egged it up!  :)  Gave it about 2.5 hours at a 325-350 deg f dome temp with a good bit of Cherry Wood for smoke.  Then I foiled it lightly for about another hour until the internal temp hit around 140-145 deg f.  Then took the foil off and glazed it every so often until the internal temp hit 160 deg f.  Best ham I've ever made!

    Thx guys! Little Steven, I'm saving it for beans and cornbread night. :)
  • Great looking ham. Now waiting to see whether you or I are the one eating crow come late Saturday night.  At least crow probably tastes better on the egg.

    Looks amazing Dyal. I want to try this but we are not big salt fans. Will it work or get messed up if I pre soak the ham?  :\">
