Honey-Glazed Ham

edited April 2017 in Pork

This honey-glazed ham has worked out well a few times now, and it's not too much of a pain.

The ham:
A fully cooked, spiral cut ham

The spray:
half-cup orange juice
half-cup apple juice or pineapple juice

The glaze:
half-cup brown sugar
half-cup honey

Preheat to 350°F.  The ham is already cooked, but you want to get it to 140°F, which is probably going to take ninety minutes.  I really haven't noticed it taking up a significant amount of smoke, but used apple, as well as apple juice in the drip pan.

Spray the ham thoroughly before cooking and every fifteen minutes along the way, but not once the glaze is on.

Twenty minutes before the ham is ready, start with the glaze.  I'd recommend putting on half and then putting on the rest about five or ten minutes later.

    Did a maple glaze myself last week. Ham is good! Nice work there.

    There is a recipe in this recent thread that sounds pretty good:

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    I think I need to make these hams two at a time, to keep the freezer stocked.  SWMBO was recently unhappy to discover there was no more ham in there.  So, I know what's going onto the grid this weekend.
