I love the old fashioned taste of it and see no reason why you could not give it a day of cold smoke after that too!!

and don't forget -
adjust the weight of the spices, cure #2 etc. according to the weight of your ham -
the recipe ingredients called for are for ~ 8 lbs of Ham..

also - note there is a decent amount of skin removed from the ham to allow for proper curing and drying..
