Another year of Dr. Chicken's Double Smoked Ham and another year of hammy amazingness. For those of you not familiar with Dr. Chicken's Ham it is absolutely amazing and can be found in this thread (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7096). I smoked a 20.5 lb, fully cooked, hickory smoked, full shank daisyfield ham with some hickory and apple wood for 6.5 hours. I normally like to cook this at 250-275 but I got it on the smoker late so smoked it at temps from 300-325 but it still turned out absolutely amazing, maybe one of the best things I have ever bbqed to date.

Here is my setup for easter morning. It was beautiful out but just a tad chilly so I set up a bonfire in my old Happy Cooker kettle and read a book while slinging down some Irish coffees (it looks like I had moved on to yuenglings by the time this picture was taken. The shovel is my ash catcher

It was served with smoked beans and smoked mac & cheese. Sorry i was not taking the pictures so there are no plate shots of shots of the slices but this ham was the juiciest and most flavorful one I have ever had. I think why this one was better than the one I did last year was because I did a full shank ham this year. The skin really helped keep it moist inside. The meat closest to the bone was sopping wet with juicy goodness. Plenty of leftovers too for some ham sammies:biggrin1: Thanks for looking. Hope everyone had a great Easter!

You mean you couldn't smell the delicious ham from your house?!? Just follow the smell next time, I have an open door policy.

Thanks guys. You need to give thus recipe a try. It has stood the test of time and brethren with flying colors. It is surprisingly easy and makes you appear to be a much better cook, or at least in my experience :grin:

You are probably talking about the west side market. That place is legendary.
