When I was growing up, my mother’s favourite meal to make for company was baked ham. We would roast it in the oven for hours, basting it with brown sugar and studding the top with pineapple rings and whole cloves. The house would fill with the aroma and we couldn’t wait for dinner!
I wanted to recreate that memory, but put my own creative spin on it. Instead of roasting ham in the oven, I cooked it in the smoker with a mustard/brown sugar glaze. A little like a honey spiral cut ham you can buy, but oh so much better!
The best part is you don’t have to buy an expensive piece of meat to feed a crowd. I spent less than a dollar per pound on a pre-cooked ham and made a meal that I would gladly serve to even my most critical friends. Full of incredible flavour, moist and tender, this was by far the best ham I have ever made and I know you will love it, too.
