Default Bigazz Ham



This thing is looking fantastic. It's been on for 2:10 at 325-350° and the internal temp is up to 82 degrees from the 37 degree starting point. I'll put some of my glaze on it when we get to about 115° and then again at 135° and I'll pull this big one off the grill when it hits 145° and tent it with foil and let it rest for 30-45 minutes. I'm not sure how long it's going to take to finish it off....

This is a fresh ham that I brined for four days... 22 pounds...

Since I have never done a fresh ham before, I called Smithfield to find out how to handle it. They pointed me to a brine recipe and told me to do it for 96 hours. I did not inject any brine or use any curing salts. They told me 96 hours would be plenty of time for a complete brine.

Nice job man, I am interested to see how it comes out. Recently somebody, and I don't remember who, said that when they did a fresh ham it didn't get quite enough cure near the bone. Regardless, that thing looks beautiful.

Looks real good, how did the brine work?
Was it ham tasting all the way to the bone?
