Default Double Smoked Ham is on ..

20 lb Smithfield ham, injected with double recipe of Sweet Kiss of Death injectable marinade 'thru mfr's cryovac', scored top and into BGE for apprx 10 hrs.starting at 225*F and slowly increasing temp. Going for 135*F internal. Has drip pan of diluted inject below.
Went with BGE and lots of pecan and cherry chunks throughout the lump (Royal Oak and Sonoran Mesquite). I'll get better temp stability for most of the cook .... if lump load starts to die out I can quickly fire up the Traeger and finish it up. I love having 2 cookers!

Plan to baste in last 2 hrs of so with 'reduced' inject .... unless someone thinks that is a bad idea. Should have planned better, won't be ready until around 8 or 9:00 tonight.

Merry Christmas to all !
