Ingredients

Ham:

  • 7 lb half leg of ham
  • 1 lemon juice only

Glaze:

  • ¾ cup maple syrup or honey
  • ¾ cup brown sugar tightly packed
  • 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp allspice or nutmeg

Instructions

Smoked Glazed Ham:

  • Remove the skin from the ham using a sharp knife. Slice around the hock and down the sides, you should be able to get your fingers under the skin and peel it gently off.
  • Make shallow score marks in the fat about ¾ of an inch apart, then do the same in the opposite angle creating a diamond pattern.
  • Set up your smoker for 275°F. I used a Weber Smoker Mountain and the minion method. Add a couple of chunks of smoking wood, I recommend using apple and cherry.
  • Place the ham on a rack in a baking dish and squeeze over the juice the lemon.
  • Add 3 cups of hot water to the baking dish and an internal temp probe into the ham and set it for 130°F. Put into the smoker
  • Place all the glaze ingredients into a small saucepan and stir over a medium heat for around 15 minutes until the sugars have all dissolved and the glaze has thickened.
  • Once the ham has reached 130°F, it’s time to start glazing. Keep applying the glaze every 15 to 20 minutes until the ham's internal temp reads 140°F.
  • It's then ready to come off and cool for 5 minutes.
  • Add one last thick coating of the glaze.
  • Slice and enjoy.

To Serve:

  • As a main protein for any holiday function.
  • In sandwiches with your favorite fillings.
  • Chopped up to make a delicious smoked pea and ham soup.
  • Thinly sliced for a topping for homemade pizzas.
