  • Re: cooking fresh ham on bge

    Hugh Pace,
    This is for Fresh Ham not a smoked one.Scrub the ham down really good and dry.Trim any loose fat.
    Cut garlic into match stem size slivers to get 1/4 cup.
    Cut green scallions into 1 inch long pieces to get 1/2 cup.
    With a thin sharp knife cut 1 inch deep holes every two inches over the ham.While the blade is in the hole,force the cut to open to allow a piece each of garlic and onion .Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
    Cook indirfect at 350 using hickory,oak and apple-just a little.
    Cook fat side up for about three hours.It takes about 15-18 minutes a lb.
    After three hours or so check the temp. of the ham.With a sharp knife cut a diamond pattern into the fat-about 1/8 inch deep.
    Brush on a well blended warm mixture of 1 jar mustard and an eual amount of rasberry,peach,plum, ar apricot jam and a dash of cayenne.If you want to dress it up stick a whole clove into each diamond.
    Close the dome and let cook till center reaches 150.Remove and let rest 10-15 minutes before slicing.Dont forget to put a water pan under the ham to catch the drippings.I usually put 1 cup apple juice and 1/2 cup water in the pan.
    Enjoy.
    PS the Dizzy Pig ham is a smoked ham,not fresh.
