Smoked Ham

I have been asked to smoke a ham for a wedding dinner. Can anyone provide me with a recipe or any advise. Thanks for the help.

    JKD,[p]The recipe for "Dave's Double Smoked Ham" in the recipe archives is awesome. It was a smash success at a 4th of July picnic and I've been requested twice since then to make it again. [p]It's very simple and produces wonderful results. Some of the ingredients for the glaze sound weird (coffee crystals?) but try it as the recipe indicates.[p]I don't think you'll be disappointed with this one![p]Dan.[p]
  • Dan.,
    I'm a little confused. Is the ham pre-smoked before the egging or is it a fresh ham? At the top of the recipe it calls for a fully cooked 1/2 shank and a few sentences later it says a cured but uncooked would be best.

    JKD, I use precooked hams rather than fresh hams. Follow the directions exactly. Adding the second spoon of instant coffee crystals really changes the aroma of the finished product. Watch your temperature carefully and don't overcook.
