I haven't tried it but I've read several times that because they're pre-sliced, they tend to dry out a bit.

I did one a long time back by soaking cotton cheese cloth in a mix of pineapple juice brown sugar and mustard. Then wrapped and smoked with corn cobs to a temp of 140. It was out of this world, But not worth the effort in my opinion. Hope this helps.

How do you guys think it would be if it wasn't pre-sliced?

I did one on New Years and it was FANTASTIC! Go to the butcher and buy a good ham. I got them to halve one. I marinated overnight is a mix of teriyaki sauce and Pineapple=Habanero Texas Pepper Jelly, then, smoked it for a couple hours ang glazed it with the remaining marinade which I reduced. I highly recommend it! And I don't like ham.

I just can't help but think a cured ham is a cured ham, And a smoked fresh ham is a fresh smoked ham. Kind of like comparing apples and oranges.

Double smoking a cooked ham will give you a fantastic product...just don't go to high...you're just re-warming a cooked ham, after all, and adding some extra smoke flavor.

Is that a fact? Or are you just guessing? 8-[

DO NOT do a spiral sliced. Get a good quality bone in from a butcher that doesn't have a bunch of water added! Here are some photos of mine:

I've double smoked hams, that is smoking a ham that is labeled
"Smoked". In fact you can even smoke a country ham.

From:

http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/hamselect.html


"Ready To Eat" vs. "Ready To Cook"

Most hams that you find at the supermarket are already cooked and can be eaten right out of the package. These include fully-cooked hams, spiral-sliced hams and canned hams. Look for the phrase "ready to eat" on the label.

Fresh hams and hams that have only been partially cooked must be fully cooked to 145-150°F internal temperature so that they achieve a final resting temperature of 155-160°F before serving. Look for the phrase "ready to cook" or "cook before eating" on the label. The USDA safe food handling instructions will also be found somewhere on the label of this kind of ham.


and

Given that they're so expensive, can be hard to come by, and have been lovingly smoked and cured for up to a year, I don't recommend that you barbecue a country ham in the Weber Bullet. However, there are differing opinions on this matter. Our friend Jim Minion of Minion Method fame says that country hams can be smoked with hickory, pecan, or fruitwood. "The thing that needs to be done to get the best results is to soak in fresh water for a couple of days, changing the water 3-4 times during that time. Smoke to 160°F internal in the center of the ham. Very good eating."

I've never tried this one, but it shows the technique...

Dr. Chicken's Double Smoked Ham
Ham should be a fully cooked or partially cooked ½ shank variety or can be shoulder variety (water added can be used, as long as the water added does not exceed 23% water added product.) If it is pre-smoked with hickory, that seems to work out best. Patti/Jean or Cooks among the best, but other varieties can be used!

Dr. Chicken's Sweet Kiss of Death Injectable Marinade
Ingredients:

1 Cup of Good clean water (if your city or well water has an offensive taste, please use bottled water)
1 Cup of light Karo syrup (make sure it is light Karo brand syrup)
1/8 Cup of Amaretto liqueur (use the real stuff it makes a difference)
2 TBS of Watkins brand Butter Pecan extract (this is the only Butter-Pecan extract I could find)
1 TBS of Rum extract (again, I used Watkins because of the better taste than store bought)
1 tsp of Orange extract (this compliments the orange juice concentrate used in the glaze or basting sauce)
1 to 2 TBS Vanilla extract (again, I used Watkins because of taste after the first run)

Directions for blending:

Into a medium size sauce pan add the water, Karo syrup and Amaretto. Stir frequently and heat very slowly to avoid scorching the sugars in the syrup.
Then, add all the remaining ingredients and continue to stir and heat slowly. When the mix looks uniform in color and smooth, remove mix from the stove and allow it to cool to almost room temperature.

Directions for use:

Didn't do the ham. It seemed like a 50/50% reply. Iwas worried about it being dry too. Cooked the ham in the oven. Smoked some other tasty stuff. I'll send some pics, if I can figure out how to do it! Thanks for the info :biggrin:
