Cheat Meats Christmas Ham Recipe

  1. Trim the rind off your already smoked and chilled leg of ham. You’ll notice under the rind there is a layer of fat. Don’t trim this off! This delicious layer of fat is what helps create your crispy and sticky coating from the glaze.
  2. Gently run a sharp knife through the fat layer of the whole ham in a crisscross pattern.
  3. Get your smoker or BBQ up to a temperature of 130°C and place your ham inside, then allow to smoke upright for 3 hours.
  4. In a small bowl mix together ½ cup apple juice, ¼ cup of whisky, 2 tbsp of honey and 1 tbsp of Dijon mustard.
  5. Place alongside the ham in the smoker and allow to warm, mixing every 15 minutes.
  6. After 3 hours has passed, begin glazing your smoked ham with the glaze mixture, brushing it every 15 minutes for a further hour.
  7. Once your ham has hit an internal temperature of 68°C, remove it from the smoker and rest on the bench for 15 minutes.
  8. Slice, serve and enjoy with your family and friends!
