OK I am a little dumb this am I guess. I know that Egret has another world famous recipe out there besides his chili?? Did he do the ham at the Ocala after party that was so good? I have a 20 lb one to cook and want to honor the man again :kiss: Or if anyone has a good one to share? my search is messed up??? :evil:

    1 Tbs Onion Powder
    2 Tsp. coarse Salt, either kosher or sea salt




    Procedure :

    This really is good if I say so myself. I got the maple-bourbon paste recipe off this forum from some unknown source, but, it provides a perfect balance of heat when coupled with the maple syrup infused ham.
