    Jpond,[p]Not sure what you're asking. Do you want to know about how to cook an already prepared ham? OR do you want to know how to smoke a fresh ham? The ham doesn't have all that much fat in it so, as far as I know it wouldn't take to slo cooking. [p]More details on what you're looking to do.
  • Sundown,
    I did a 22lb for thanksgiving, took right at 8-9hrs, cooked at 250-265, little alder chips and rubbed with cinnamon crackers and brown sugar

    ive always wanted to try it, i was told here by alot of folks that you couldnt make pull from a leg of lamb years ago so i went and did it, something to consider would be a water pan with liquid in it, and maybe wrapping it at the end with some more liquid like seltzer water to braise and act as a tenderizer. pulled ham sandwiches with a raisin sauce actually sounds interesting to me. i would try it

  • Sundown,
    I was wanting to smoke a fresh ham. I just figured I would have to cook it slow since it was so big (10 lbs.). Any thoughts?[p]Thanks!

  • sven,
