Black Pepper Smoked Ham
 
Hey everyone. Been working on a black pepper home cured ham, and I finally got time to smoke a tester. Got a small 3 lb boneless shoulder and put it in my brine for 2+ days and rolled it in fresh cracked black pepper! I'm not a HUGE black pepper man but damn it tastes pretty darn good! Here are the pics:

Here's the boneless shoulder:

In the brine:

I took it out the brine & patted it dry. Then I tied it up & rolled in the freshly cracked coarse black pepper and returned it to the fridge for a couple hours to dry off:

And on to the smoker with some lychee wood for smoke:

Pulled it off at 155˚

That is seriously inspirational. I've been buying pepper rind hams and doing the double smoke thing with 'em. I will be doing this - soon! :hungry: (at least as soon as my family gets over the ham we've been eating for the past week :doh:)
