How were they cured? Those bad boys look awsome in the smoker right now. May try to sneak in on the actual feast to sample that. Good Luck and Happy Thanksgiving.

They were brined when I bought them. They said they were brined with a "sweet brine". The wood is pecan. This is were I bought them. It is just down the road from work. They typically only sell to distributors.

I have never seen an uncooked ham before. Those are looking great. I need to start going to the butcher shop instead of the grocery store.

The color isn't running as dark as we thought, especially with pecan. I always thought pecan darkens faster than most wood for some reason. Maybe nothing to it, just me thinking again. Not a lot of difference in the last two hours.
I think you can take them all the way without wrapping. What do you think?


You know...I sure lost a lot of sleep for someone cooking with a FEC.

I was surprised about the color also. I think using lump helped out with the color also.

You have to stay up..........you never know when the power will go out.

I got the hook up and use a lot of pecan. My poultry has been more of a golden color rather than a dark brown.

One done. 5 more degrees on the other. Ok, ok, I sampled it. If you have never cooked a fresh ham, I highly recommend it. MMMMMMMM.
