    Al, it looks very good and I know it will be good(done a few of these myself)[​IMG]

    My boy bought a whole pig and had it cut up. He brought over a fresh ham to smoke and the difference in fresh and the cured is awsome.A completely different taste.I just did it like anything else,rub and smoke; cuts out the salty taste and brings out the spices more along with the smokiness[​IMG]

    Yes, it took a heck of a long time(220*F for um-teen hrs.,well worth the wait.The melting thingy is "Brilliant" and I will try that; I like crispy skin anyhow and that takes care of 2 birds at one time.

    Thanks for the tip and remember to...                                               [​IMG]

    Al. Many thanks for your insight and guideance. after I read this post I went to the local store down the street that is right next to what used to be the largest stock yard in the country. I purchased 12 lbs. of Fresh Cured Bone In Ham. I mixed the ingredients you have shown and had two of the rug rats there waiting to be my testers, after their approval we slapped in on the pig and put it in the fridge to soak up that great flavor. I ended up cooking it for about 4.25 hours in my little brink-man sportsman stack smoker ( until my masterpiece is done! (see my profile for updates) ) got it to 150 took it off foiled it up and put it in the oven to baste a little longer and cool down. Sorry I didn't get any pics but it looked outstanding and tasted great.

    Once again Many Thanks for your post.

    we had the same ham and my wife put it in the oven!

    She does not like smoked anything (except my CB)

    I'm betting that never happens again!

    Awesome job, it looks pretty tasty.
  17. That looks wonderful Al. Work of art. Love the self basting with the fat idea.
  18. Another cut of meat to add to my growing list for the store. That looks great Al and I used your fat dripping idea for my brisket last week.

    That ham looks like it turned out excellent.  I guess my post is a little late.  What I really like to baste ham with is spiced rum.  I know the traditional maple/brown sugar is great, but my mom would always baste them in spiced rum and brown sugar.  Also, save the bone for bean soup.
  20. Awesome job Al! Gotta try this sometime!
