Tavern Ham aka Cottage Ham Recipe

I cooked my first Cottage ham this weekend in the Dutch Oven on my  Egg and was very happy with the results. I picked this ham up from a family owned, 100-year old butcher shop on a road trip through Ohio called Stehlin's. They use a salt and sugar cure and smoke these for 24 hours with hickory - if you are ever in the area, I suggest you visit - you won't regret it!

This recipe was as follows:

Fresh green beans and diced Red Potatoes on the bottom of the dutch oven 

2 lbs. bacon
Tavern Ham
Two (2) People's Brewing Company Moundbuilder IPA beers for liquid
Few pinches of dried garden peppers (jalapeno, etc)  for some kick

Plate setter legs up, cooked at 350 - 375 F for 2 hours and polished off two more of those IPA's while the food was cooking ;)
