Honey Glazed Smoked Ham

contributed by Carrie-Nell Jessop

This calls for a smoker, but I just do it in the oven.  You can do this with a cooked or uncooked ham (pre-smoked).  I’ve done both.

If uncooked: preheat oven to 350, place ham fat side up in deep pan, 1 c. liquid in bottom of pan, place a piece of foil tightly over the ham, but leave loose on the sides of the pan, cook 20 minutes or so per pound.

If cooked, 225 for around 6 hours (I’ve done it in less time).

The night before you cook, mix together the following ingredients, rub on ham, and wrap ham tightly in foil and refrigerate:

1 tbs. black pepper

1 tbs. paprika

1 tbs. sugar

1/2 tbs. salt

1 tsp. dry mustard

1/2 tsp. cayenne

The next day when you’re ready to cook it, mix together:

3/4 cup chicken stock

1 cup pineapple juice

1 1/2 tbs. vegetable oil

1/2 dry mustard

1/2 tsp. cloves

Warm mixture over medium heat.

Place ham in roasting pan, cover with foil, and baste with sauce mixture once every hour or so.

Prepare glaze:

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup pineapple juice

1/2 tsp. dry mustard

pinch of ground cloves

Brush generously with glaze a couple of times during the last hour of cooking.

Best. Ham. EVER.
