Smoked Spiral Ham with Sugar Baste

A spiral sliced ham is smoked to perfection thanks to Extraordinary BBQ! Follow the recipe below:

  • 1 spiral sliced Ham shank portion
  • For Sugar Baste
  • 1/2 c Orange Juice
  • 1/2 c Apple Juice
  • 1/4 c Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 c Honey
  • 1/8 c Real Maple Syrup
  • For Sugar Rub
  • 1/2 c Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 c Turbinado Sugar
  • 1/4 c White Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  • Set up your grill for indirect cooking/smoking – or use your smoker. You want a temp between 225-250. Use Apple or Cherry Wood.
  • Place your ham meat side down – bone up – in an aluminum pan. I suggest the pan only because it will contain the sugary mess you’re about to create.
  • Brush the Sugar Baste all over the ham.
  • Sprinkle the Sugar Rub all over the ham.
  • Smoke until internal temp hits 140 Fahrenheit. My ham was about 10lbs and took about 2.5 hours. Feel free to add additional sugar baste and rub during the smoke. I did, and it was spectacular.
