A crowd pleaser with big flavors
Watch Pitmaster Daniel demonstrate how to smoke ham for the holidays.
10-12 lbs bone-in Ham, pre-cooked
1/2 cup Jack Daniels Pork Spice Blend, plus 1 tsp, divided
Prep the smoker for indirect heat
Carefully run a knife through the fatty side of the ham, slicing diagonal lines just through the fat, creating a criss cross direction.
Transfer the ham to a small baking sheet of aluminum pan.
Season the Pork
Sprinkle Jack Daniels Pork Rub liberally over the ham.
Make the Glaze:
Whisk the maple syrup and Jack Daniels together in a small heat-proof pot. Add the remaining 1 tsp Jack Daniels Pork Rub.
Place over the cooler side of the grill and allow to reduce, mixing occasionally.
Smoke the Ham:
Smoke the ham for about 3 hours, basting every 15 to 20 minutes with the juices that render from the pork. The ham is already cooked, you are just adding flavor and re-heating to serve.
For the last hour, baste with the maple glaze.
Remove the ham from the grill, cover and rest 20 minutes.
Slice and serve, brushing with additional maple glaze as desired.
