Default First try at the "Snake Method". Smoked a ham

Well last Sunday I decided to try the snake method on a half ham. One of those partially cooked Smithfield jobs I believe. Got the snake going and stabilized the temp at ~290 deg. Smoked him for about 4 hrs, internal temp 140. Hit it up with a simple brown sugar/mustard glaze, let it cook the glaze on for about 20 min, repeat glaze 20 min, done.

I know it is the best ham I ever did, juicy and flavorful, even out of the fridge the next day. I believe it may just be the best ham I ever had...

Sorry for the bad pics. I'm no photographer.

VR,
Harold

You can't see it in the pics, but it was a snake, it was about 3 coals wide and about 2-3 deep, wrapped about 2/3 of the way around with a chunk of hickory every 4"... I usually use the banked method for indirect.

Harold
