    I think the Alton Brown city ham gets good reviews. Bente is a big fan.

    I just smoke mine. I'm a simple dude. no coatings, bastes, or toppings. just ham, heat, and smoke. 300* until they read 130-135 internal then rest under foil for 30 minutes. Remove the skin and external fat, slice, and eat.

    They sure taste good though. The bones make some killer bean soup.

  • Fidel,

    Thanks for the pic. Looks great.

    Do you have a link to the Alton Brown city ham?

    Terry will probably add a picture.,1977,FOOD_9936_15538,00.html
  • East Cobb Eggy,
    Egret has a good one also.[p]Maple-Bourbon Ham
    by John Hall (egret)[p]Ingredients :[p]Maple-Bourbon Paste (recipe follows)
    10-12 # cooked, ready to eat ham (bone-in Butt or Shank section)
    1/2-1 cup Maple Syrup
    Cherry and Apple Chunks[p]Procedure :[p]The day before smoking, place ham in a pan flat side down. Inject in multiple locations with maple syrup (use more than 1 cup if it will take it).
    Smear the Maple-Bourbon Paste all over the exposed surfaces (except flat side). Cover loosely with plastic wrap and put in refrigerator until ready to smoke (You can remove ham from refrigerator up to one hour before cooking).
    Stabilize egg at 250° with plate setter (legs up) regular grid with raised grid attached. Put 3 or 4 good size chunks of wood on coals, then place ham on raised grid. Cook until internal temperature reaches 140° (this should take about 5 hours). I, sometimes, inject with more maple syrup about one hour before ham is done.[p]Maple-Bourbon Paste[p]2 Tbls. pure Maple Syrup
    2 Tbls. freshly ground Black Pepper
    2 Tbls. Dijon or Honey-Dijon Mustard
    1 Tbls. Bourbon
    1 Tbls. Vegetable Oil
    1 Tbls. Paprika
    1 Tbls. Onion Powder
    2 tsp. coarse Salt, either kosher or sea salt [p]

  • East Cobb Eggy,[p]Can't help you with your ham issue, but was curious about your "name". Are you in East Cobb as in Marietta, GA?[p]if so...we are neighbors..I live about a mile from the intersection of Johnson Ferry & may have smelled a couple of Boston Butts on the egg last night.[p]Smoking Jacket
