Ham Slam!

Picked up a 11.5 "fully cooked" ham with a bone. We're gonna slow smoke it today. Have you ever done one? The books say "slow cook to 140 internal at ~220 degrees." Any guesses how long that might take based on your experinnce? It's 8:30AM now and I'd like to eat before midnight.

Happy 4th everyone and God bless our men and women in uniform including our military, fire fighters, police, EMT's and the many others who risk their lives on our behalf each day.

Is this going in the smoker or on the grill?

How ever you do it, Don't take it over 140 inturnal temp. It will be dryer than a pop corn fart! Been there, Done that. A little glaze is good too. I got a dollar in the pot. I'll go with 4 and a half hours.

Thanks "Pigs." So far I've 8-10 hours and 4.5 hours. Maybe 6 hours will be the magic number. I'll let you know who has the winning number. Oh! I love the line "...dryer than a popcorn fart." Where do you guys come up with these colloquialisms? 140 it is.

Sorry Brian, but I'm on the 3-4 hour time zone this time. Susan is right, when I did buckboard bacon, those pork butts took no time at all to get to 140. In fact, they took about 3 hours.

2.5 hours at 200 degrees and we're at 80 degrees in the meat. I plan to dial down the heat as this appears to be going pretty fast. I didn't want to eat at midnight but I DID want to have a few Bud Suds while doing the que. Nine minutes til the beer man comes by.

2:30PM-five hours from the start and we are now at 120 in the meat. Looks like smoked ham just in time for the horse races at 4:00PM on ESPN. Mrs Airboss made her killer pot salad and apple sauce. I'll let ya'll know how it turns out.
