    I will be smoking a spiral cut ham for Christmas and need some ideas. I have searched through the threads already but was hoping for some input here.

    I have read about injecting the ham. Give me your favorite injections you use...

    Also, what recipe for dry rub do you prefer? I saw a video of Jeff's and read several threads using Jeffs rub but have not seen the recipe.

    Spiral cut ham would be pretty hard to inject since it is sliced.

    Since spiral cut hams are already cooked and cured I'd skip injecting or brining.

    For a rub I like to keep it simple and use pepper, garlic, chipotle powder. I don't do salt because the ham is already salty enough.

    Near the end I like to put on a sweet with heat glaze. I will make it using either apricot or peach preserves, pineapple, garlic, mustard, beer, butter and Sriracha. Heat and reduce down. Apply to the ham the last hour of your cook.
