How to Smoke a Ham?
The first thing you need to know when buying a ham is that it is always better to pay a little more money for a product that hasn’t 1/3 water weight. Choose the spiral sliced, bone-in, cooked meat that weighs about ten or more pounds.
The next thing is to keep your meat fresh before you want to smoke it. Just place it in the fridge and leave it to rest. When you are ready to prepare smoked ham, remove it from the refrigerator and set aside.
Place it on the baking sheet, use yellow mustard and squeeze it all over the meat to add a little flavor to the ham. Grab a handful of the brown sugar and rub it. Or you don’t have to use any additions if you don't want to, that depends on your personal preference. After you have done that, turn on the smoker.
Put the meat into the unit, on the center rack, flat side down. Set the temperature between two hundred and two hundred and twenty-five degrees F. It is essential to reach the internal temperature of hundred and forty degrees F, so it’s wise to use a digital thermometer.
Leave the meat to smoke for about an hour, hour and a half. Make sure you are checking it so that the ham’s bottom doesn’t get too done. Lower the heat if you notice that it is dark brown.
Take the meat out of the appliance at 2 ½ hours and put it on aluminum foil (double thickness). It is essential that you have enough of it to wrap the whole ham. But, before you do that, use orange juice to spray the meat’s outside.
The next step it is to use the remains of the brown sugar and sprinkle it over the food and then you can wrap it. Return it to the unit until the internal temperature reaches one hundred and forty degrees F, for about one hour.
When it is done, take the meat out of the appliance and leave it to rest for about twenty to thirty minutes, while it’s still wrapped. When you remove the foil, there will be juices on it. But, don’t throw it, because you can use it to pour over the ham right before you serve it.
