Ham that Tastes Like Ham

Hat tip to @Mickey for the name and method—a Costco spiral sliced ham smoked over apple and cherry at 275ish indirect on a MiniMax. Really phenomenal taste—smoky, salty, delicious. I like this a lot better than the candied hams that are more typical.

    That's the way I like all of my spiral cut hams.

    Good call. I did the same thing on Easter Sunday. Avoid the glaze, embrace the smoke. Some of the leftovers made an epic batch of bean soup yesterday.

    The glazed hams are too sweet for us. Mickey's ham rocks.

    And those pics belong in a magazine!

    Cute lil' ham.  :)
    I can see where a glaze might be too much for a spiral 3 pounder.  Don't think it really matters in the grand scheme on a full sized adult one.   ;)

    As others have said, that's the way to cook a ham. My family absolutely loves these. They are so easy to cook it almost seems like cheating.
