To the top for Christmas! I have made this ham 4 more times and I am happy with the recipe. I am making one tonight for the office Christmas party tomorrow.

Kinda off topic but has anyone done something similar with a spiral ham? Does it dry out too much?

Let me digress, my wife called me last Wednesday and asked if I wanted her to order a "Dr Pepper Ham" from the butcher for Easter. She said she had tasted a sample and it was very good. Baahhhh! I ain't paying 50.00 for a ham that someone else smoked. NO WAY! So she bought a ham and I agreed to make it a Dr Pepper ham. There are a couple recipes on the net about Dr Pepper ham glaze so I atleast had a starting point. After reading the instructions for Dr. Chicken's Double smoked ham I was ready to start concocting. Here is what I came up with:

Injector Recipe
1 cup of Aunt Jamima Butter flavor syrup
1 cup Dr. Pepper
1/4 cup bourbon
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Glaze Recipe
1 cup of Dr. Pepper
1.5 cups of light brown sugar
1/2 cup Orange Juice
1/2 cup Bourbon
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
6-8 whole cloves
2-3 stick of cinnamon
Bring to a boil and simmer till thickened to a syrupy consistency.

Here it is at 130 degrees.
Wow, that looks so darned good!

OK, at the risk of being banished from the BBQ Brethren, I will admit that I tried this recipe on a spiral cut ham, in the oven. GASP! It was ok. The injected flavor was there, but of course it was missing the smoke and that is what really makes it good. The problem with a spiral cut is that it's already fully cooked, so you can't smoke it for 7-8 hours without ruining it. You can get some smoke flavor, if you smoke it, just don't cook it too long.

The "ready to cook" whole ham is the best bet. The sweet smoky melting fat is so freakin' tasty!

To update on the last cook:

23 pound whole ham on an electric smoker @ 225 degrees took 7 hours to hit 140 degrees internal. I used a remote thermometer and didn't open the door until it was at 140 internal. The two previous hams were around 20 pounds and took 7 1/2 and 8 hours respectively. They included much more door opening cause relatives were around and wanted to "see it". I have taken to glazing after I take them off, before and after resting. This keeps from making such a mess in the smoker and I can't tell any difference.

Yeah, I was given a spiral ham and instead of the ol oven method I'm going to attempt to smoke it. God, hopefully this thing doesn't dry out.

It will lose some moisture, but if you truss it up tightly and place it on your grate with the spiral cuts horizontal to help hold in the juices I think you should be OK...The tricky part is getting it to sit that way. I have had to trim the butt end to get a "flat spot", and that wastes a sliver.FWIW
