In the past I have hung my ham and by putting a net around it, the net helps to hold the meat together as it cooks..so you get that nice shape.

Just like when a shapely girl has on fishnets, they hold their shape also!
Nice start Dave.

I will update this as often as I can but I also have some sausage to make just picked up another case of pork butts….I had to change plans I was going to hang the ham but its too big…as it cooks and shrinks I may try to hang it but for now it will go on the grate….



In the bag

In the smokehouse

Notice the color of the ham...and then see what it looks like during the smoking process...

Dave,
Out of curiosity, what is the stocking net for? Is that the same type of net they use to hang them in the smoke houses with??

Looks fantastic so far!

Yep its the same kind of net...in the past I have hung my hams but this one was a tad to big for the smokehouse....I should have cut a few more inches off the bottom of it to make it fit....

Well, he guessed right-- it's 11:40 and I just pulled it off the smoker; will leave it out an hour or so to bloom before putting it in the fridge (no, really, I'm SUPPOSED to put it in the fridge.... )

Hack into that bad ham! You wouldn't want it to be sub par, would you?
