Christmas Ham bonanza Day 2 **Pr0n0graphic
 
As I said guys... this was a VERY busy season for me. Here's the second all nighter batch of hams I did for a client.

This was about 75lbs of big half leg hams. After a quick soak I put them on the smoker with some lychee and logwood to smoke a bit.

After a couple hours they hit 120 and the color on them were nothing short of amazing! I took them off the smoke and peeled the skin off and glazed some with mustard and spiced sugar and others with s black pepper & brown sugar mixture:

Here's the brown sugar ham:

and here's the process for the black pepper and sugar ham! (I fell head over heels for these BTW):

Peeled off the skin:

and coated liberally:

After glazing they went back on the smoker for some more heat and smoke.

The glaze came out perfect!!! It was a dry glaze that almost became a hard sugar shell around the ham when it was finished. The sugar would not shake off and you could pretty much crack it with a good tap of the finger.

Another all nighter with a smoke and a drink in front of the smoker with my friend that was helping me out. Made the hours go by a bit easier during down time!:

They looked amazing when they came off:

Was almost a shame that they were ordered to be sliced! :shocked: They were too pretty! I did cut those suckers up the next day after a good rest though: :twisted:
