I know many are looking for stuff to do special for the holiday feasts coming up.  I have a sort of omnibus post showing all the stuff that fits the bill from GrillinFools.com, from turkey, to prime rib, to lamb, to lobster and finally this little nugget that I've been waiting two years to put on the site.  For some reason, since the beginning of GrillinFools in November of 2008, we have forgotten to document the ham we do every year.  It's so incredible, and so easy, yet we forgot the camera the last couple of years. 

So, at long last, here's the ham, with pictures every step of the way.

And here is the only picture you need to see:

This is probably my last blog post for the year.  Enjoy....

And here is the write up without the pics:

This is a tradition at Thanksgiving in the Grillin Fools Family.  Its very simple to do as the ham is already cooked.  The ham is like a blank canvas waiting for extra flavor from the glaze and  smoke wood.  There are a million and one ways of doing this, Ill hand this over to Tom to show you how we do it


1 can crushed pineapple
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 bottle white zinfendel or other sweet wine
1/2 cup honey
2 tbs dijon mustard
20 pound bone in super trim ham

***Editors Note ~ Before you mock the white zin, as was my first inclination, realize the goal is a sweet wine and an entire bottle is used.  Cant get much sweeter or cheaper than white zine***

Combine all the wet ingredients:

Prepare grill for indirect grilling and med to med-low heat approx 275 325 degrees.
Place ham on grill, spoon glaze mixture over ham, add smoke wood and close the lid.  Peach wood is perfect for this with its light and subtle flavor.  Any of the lighter fruit woods will work such as apple, apricot, or pear.  A full run down on more than 50 different things to smoke meat  and what they pair best with, can be found here.

Here are a couple closeups on the ham with the topping.  When this thing first goes on the grill, its not all that appetizing:

Here is the ham on the grill next to a turkey on the Big Green Egg:

Cook approximately three to four hours, spooning additional glaze over the ham every 30 minutes, adding extra fuel and smoke wood as needed.

Heres the ham after a couple hours:

And here it is ready to come off the grill:

***Editors Note ~ Feel free to scroll back up and look at at the two pictures of right after the glaze was applied to compare to this.  Go ahead.  I know you want to. Ill wait***

This is Tom carving into this amazing ham:

BTW, if you want to see how that turkey came out, here it was ready to come off the grill:

And the breast being sliced:
