    This isnt smoking, but i guess its still ok to post ?

    I baked a christmas ham about one week ago, this is a 9lb ham without the bone. It took allmost nine hours to get ready, used low temp at a 90c.

    Small ham, but the ratio in meat&grease was good!

    Brushed with honey after few hours.

    After six hours the skin was starting to loosen so i took it off and

    brushed more honey on top. I allso added the pineapple rings and cherrys (sorry no pics of this part).

    About 2 1/2h later the ham is ready, just letting it smooth for a 30 minutes before cutting.

    Took it out when the inner temperature hit 73c.

    First portion and liking it a lot, this was the first ham in years!

    Just finished the ham today, after fast oven roast at 200c it was much

    better than one week ago, very greasy.

    Made also sandwiches with oak smoked irish cheddar.

    Yes it was good tasting ham and very nice layer of fat! That was my first ham in years, but it turned out nicely. Maybe it was stupid to glaze with honey before the skin was peeling off, but i didnt realise it before it started to peel...

    Tuesday its live or die, i will take my Kettle out of the basement and trye to smoke little bit of ham! Thanks to SMF i think it will be allright[​IMG]
