Ok; no long winded explanations or recipes. This one couldn't be easier. And it was possible the best ham I ever prepared.
1 Smithfield bone-in ham, about 15 lbs.
1 12-oz. can crushed pineapple, drained.
4 tbs. Grade-B pure Maple Syrup (much cheaper and whole bunch better
Chunks of soaked apple wood
Combine the maple syrup and crushed pineapple in a suitable bowl of pan.
Fire up the barbecue, whatever kind you have for indirect heat cooking. When hot, place the wood over the fire. Place the ham over the unlit burner of your gas stove, or between the beds of charcoal in your charcoal grill. Cover and cook with medium heat. After 10 minutes, brush with the pineapple/maple glaze and cover again. Continue basting with glaze every 20 minutes until the ham is hot all the way through as read with a meat thermometer (165' F.).
This ham received rave review from my whole family, even those who don't usually like ham. The apple smoke really added a wonderful taste to the ham, while the pineapple/maple glaze served to counterpoint and ballance the flavors. This thing was so moist and tender. You've got to try this.
And yep, I used the Webber Kettle with charcoal holders on either side to cook my ham in.
Serve with your favorite sides.
