If you were gifted or purchased a pre-cooked cured ham and want to try something amazing, take a look (and a taste) at what we did with our ham. All you need is your favorite rub, some Terrapin Ridge Farms Apple Maple Bacon Jam, a stick of butter, and a smoker!
Since this ham is pre-cooked, we don’t need to worry about getting it up to any specific temperature, we are just going to smoke it to add some smoke flavor and heat it up to help thicken the glaze and warm the meat.
With a very sharp knife, make thin (about 3/4-1 inch) slices all along the surface in a diamond pattern. This will allow the seasoning and smoke flavor to penetrate the meat more rapidly.
Take your favorite BBQ rub (we recommend something with some sweetness) and fully coat the outside of the ham. If your ham is wet enough, you should not need to add anything to keep the seasoning on your meat. If your ham is dry, you can add a thin layer of mustard and apply the seasoning to that, the mustard will cook off and leave the seasoning.
Mix 1 bottle of Terrapin Ridge Farms Apple Maple Bacon Jam with a stick of butter and heat over medium heat while whisking. Once all the butter has melted into the jam, set aside and allow to cool slightly.
We are going to smoke this at around 250° for 3 hours. Remember, we don’t need to worry about getting it to any specific temperature.
- 1st hour will be vents open and no smoke or humidity
- 2nd hour, we will add smoke and humidity
- Before the 3rd hour, you will pull it out of the smoker and cover it with the glaze and then put it back in the smoker/oven
- With 30 minutes left, pull it again and reapply the glaze
- Give it a final coating when it is done smoking
Slice this as thick or thin as you want. With so much great taste around the first few inches, just make sure that everyone gets at least a few slices with some good crust!
