Naked Ham A New Way (for me)

When I always did Egerts Ham I used spiral hams as fingers got more sauce in than injection in non-spiral. Now I have went to only doing Naked Hams I use half hams, bone in non-spiral hams scored really deep. Going to see how a spiral ham will work as a Naked a Ham this weekend. My only worry is drying out. We will see and I will post pics Sunday. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

    Any reason for doing a spiral-cut instead of an uncut? I've done a spiral-cut ham a few times in the past, without realizing that an uncut ham would be less likely to dry out The hams came out ok, but next time I think I'll try an uncut ham.

    I pull around 140F internal and it usually takes about 3 hours.

    Just to see. Egerts (IMO) is better in spiral. Dry is what I am worried about.

  • Please let us know how you think it compares with non-spiral sliced.  I have a Cook's spiral sliced ham in the freezer and I've never cooked one before.  Bought it in Salado, based on your previous posts.

  • Has anyone here ever cooked a raw ham?  I would think that has more potential (brining, smoke, etc.)

    yep. Best ever. I'll find it. Did if for Thanksgiving last year and I'll never go back.

    I can post the recipe if needed. It's verbatim from the Charcuterie book if you have that. Really, really good ham.

    @Mickey, your ham looks great!

    How about details on heat, time and final temp?

    TIA!

    I did a fresh ham a la Charcuterie once and never again – not worth the trouble, in my book. I would probably think differently if I had an extra refrigerator.

    So it's a spiral ham all lathered up with the maple recipe? Cooked to 140?

    No Sir. It is Naked. Nothing at all except smoke. Wood was sugar maple and cherry. Cooked at 300 pulled 135 for this spiral ( was worried about drying ). Once more nothing, no S&P.

    NAKED HAM / SMOKE ONLY Let me start that for the past 6 years i have only cooked Egerts Ham (this is an outstanding ham Egged on the BGE). A short while ago went looking for (did not know this at the time) a naked ham / smoke only. Looking at other ways to do a ham w/o the burbon, maple syrup, brown sugar, NO ANYTHING. Guys this was outstanding ham. It tasted like ham. It was a 7 lb Cooks ham (shank) and NOTHING was put on it (Nothing). Just smoke: both lots of Sugar Maple and cherry chunks. Cooked at 300 till 135. I did score the ham deep. Cooked indirect. New item: just did spiral and worked out fine.
