SuckleBusters Honey Pecan Smoked Ham Recipe
8 – 10 lb. Spiral Sliced, fully cooked ham
1 Cup Pineapple Juice
½ Cup Brown Sugar
½ Cup SuckleBusters Honey BBQ Sauce (or substitute Peach BBQ Sauce)
Whisk these ingredients together over medium heat until it reaches a low boil. Reduce the mixture for 3-5 minutes stirring occasionally.
Sweet Pecan Rub:
¼ tsp Nutmeg
¼ tsp Cloves
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ginger
1/4 Cup SuckleBusters Pecan BBQ Rub
1 Cup Brown Sugar
Combine these ingredients in a bowl, cover and shake until well blended.
Place the ham (large end down) on a wire rack in a shallow sided aluminum pan. Brush on a generous amount of the BBQ glaze using a brush. Next, cover the outside of the ham completely with the Sugar Rub.
Cook the ham on a grill/smoker at approx. 275 degrees cooking temperature.
HINT: If using wood chunks or chips - select pecan or other fruit woods for a mild smoke flavor.
Reapply the BBQ Glaze every 30 minutes to 1 hour or when the ham begins to look dry.
Use a thermometer and cook to an internal temperate of 140 degrees.
HINT: Cooking time can vary but it should be ready in approx. 2 – 3 hours. Do not over-cook or the ham will dry out, remember this is a pre-cooked ham, so you only need to warm it in order to cook the glaze and rub.
HINT: When the ham is ready, the slices will start to separate slightly and the outside will have a crusty look.
Remove the ham from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing. Serve and enjoy!http://www.sucklebusters.com/bbq-rubs-se
