Raw Ham

I just started a 16 pound ham as a present for my MIL bday ( never ask how many...)

I am expecting it done done in20 hours at 250 dome. Depending on how it goes I might bring the heat up early tomorrow morning...
 It has the rind on and it is seasoned only with sea salt and lemon pepper...

    Looks good - is it uncooked but cured?

    No. It is the way it comes off of the animal. 
    I just described the part of the pork!

    I'm no ham expert, but it is on my to do list, so I've looked into it quite a bit.  If you want ham, the pink, salty stuff that is commonly called ham, you need to cure it before smoking.  Smoking a piece of pork, "the way it comes off the animal" will result in a pork roast, or pulled pork, depending on what temp you take it to.  It will not taste like ham.  You will still have a very nice fresh pork roast.

    It will be pulled but how would you call this particular part of pork? If leg then so be it...Names is not the issue here.

    The pork came out at 19 hours having 200 IT.

    No photos because it was consumed in 20'.

    It certainly looks good, I bought a half-pig recently and it came with a nice fresh ham.  I am thinking of curing, i would like to see how that would come out.  I will dig up my Charcuterie book and get cracking.

    thats what i would call it, fresh ham, as opposed to a cured only country ham or a cooked smoked ham. looks good, did it pull well at 200

    Isn't fresh ham (ham that hasn't been cured) also called green ham? Or is that something else?

    It pulled perfect, Made a great impassion to all and as a side dish I had sweet bell peppers stuffed with a variety of cheese, cherry tomatoes and pieces of grilled turkey. Fantastic meal....
