Mule's cold double smoked ham. In a MES40 using a AMNPS. With Qview

Discussion in 'Other' started by themule69, Feb 8, 2014.

  1. It is time to double smoke a 10# spiral sliced ham. ( this is a fully cooked ham). I had to pre heat the MES 40 in order to cold smoke. It is 24° here. So I turned the MES on for 3 minutes. Got a full AMNPS fired up using 2 parts hickory to 1 part apple pellets. I am going to let it smoke as long as the AMNPS goes.

    Here is the ham as soon as it goes into the smoke.


    More pics to come.

    Happy smoken.

  4. I decided to add more smoke. Here is the way to lite a AMNPS. Set it in front of 5he fireplace. Keep a good eye on it. The Draft is strong.

  6. Well after 1 and 2/3 AMNPS I looked at the ham this morning. I'm wanting more color. So I loaded the AMNPS with oak pellets. It will be a milder smoke. I hope it gets deeper into the ham. Maybe I need to get in a 12 step program. I think I am a smoke hound!

    Happy smoken.

    Great Job, David!!![​IMG]

    Nothing quite like a Double Smoked Ham !!!

    Maybe we should start a "National Smoke Hounds" club.

    Does double smoking a ham dry it out?

    Cold smoking it, which is what i believe he did, should not dry it out, but hot smoking would more then likely make it a bit dry.

    David can tell you too, but in the mean time:

    No, Cold smoking won't dry a Ham out, and neither will Hot smoking. See Below:
