    So avoiding the advice of some here ;) and my wife, I went big with my Ham.  I looked at a ton of recipe's and kinda came up with my own concoction.  So here goes:

    10# spiral  hickory smoked ham

    Slathered in Honey Mustard

    Seasoned with Applewood dry rub, cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice and cloves

    Pinned on Pineapple slices

    Draped bacon over top

    Smoked with Pit Master Blend for 2 1/2hrs and Apple Wood Chips for about an hour

    Misted with a mix of 3 cups Apple Juice, 2 cups of Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 cup of Southern Comfort

    The finale, drizzled with a blended mix of Orange Marmalade Jelly, Pineapple and Brown Sugar for the last half hour.

    I'm having big temperature problems with my MES 40 and It took 275* setting to achieve 225* internal temp.  I used the meat probe pinned to the wall and a mechanical thermo laying inside as well for verification.  So my ham only reached about 120 IT when i served it, family waiting and all.

    Enjoy the pics. 

    It was as bomb as it looks.

    It tasted fantastic.  There were a lot of flavors flowin around in the mouth.  Smoke was great.  I wish I could have found an unsmoked ham but I couldn't.  I'm gonna post pics of the ABT's in the proper section shortly.  They were fantastic too.
