    Thanks Steve, it turned out better than I would have expected. The self basting idea may be something that I will incorporate in my future smokes.

    Holy crap Al.....that is AWESOME looking...definitely a cover for Bon Appetit or Southern Living. I may have to rethink this charcoal business after seeing that. LMAO about you having the Doc on speed dial....I'd bet for some of that he'd make a house call. I can see a run at the markets now for pork skin by all the SMF smokeheads. Great job....waiting for the P'strami shots

    Al-----That IS------------AWESOME !!!!!!

    That's about the best looking ham I have ever seen!!!

    I really am drooling, and I'm not just saying it !

    I never worry about "Trans Fat". If you eat it at home, and you don't transport it anywhere, I don't consider it "Trans-fat"!

    BTW: PORK FAT RULES !!!!!

    Thanks Al,

    Bear

    LOL---I knew you were gonna bring up the points---You're right!

    My wife does about 40 income taxes yet, from when she used to run a tax office. This year it seems nearly everyone is doing better at tax time---Even us!

    That looks great Al! A++ on that sucker [​IMG]

    If you ever want to feel really guilty find one of the cheap pressed hams that come in a big rectangle block. Make a rub with a lot of brown sugar and allspice, cut the ham block into fat finger sized chunks, coat them with mustard and then apply the rub libberaly. They are an awesome appetizer, sweet and salty (salt from the ham), and definately not a cardiologists idea of a good food.

    Hey, I got one of those pressed hams.  Maybe I better wait until after my annual physical.  I'm going to catch heck enough without adding to.  I guess I could say some Oregonian made me do it..[​IMG]

    No not all of them are pre-cooked. Wally World has these all the time. There uncooked & untrimmed. You have to remove quite a bit of skin & fat. We like them much better than the pre-cooked one's, and they are a lot cheaper.
