A Hat for your Ham? (Pix)

I'm a huge ham fan and have been tweaking several recipes that I've found here on the forum. Despite cooking them at low temps (225-250) one problem I frequently encounter is charring on the upper portion of the shank half. After taking some heat from the eaters. (I call them eaters because they don't cook. They just eat and comment.) I decided to give my Hams a little foil hat and was curious if anyone else does this or if there are other techniques my fellow Eggers use to avoid this issue.   image   image    image
I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me.

      Nope. Last three cooks. I cook at 300. The last one a very little but was fine.


    Salado TX Egg Family: 3 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max when they came out (I'm good for now).
