    Glögg injected Christmas Ham - with a mustard batter

    Hi Pit members, I haven't posted in a while, sad to say. Been crazy busy. But I did manage to smoke a ham yesterday. Ham is very traditional for Xmas in Sweden, so every year I smoke a few. It is normally cooked, but i like smoked better

    So, the M.O. is easy. Buy a store brined ham, trim off the skin, but leave that delicious fat cap. Inject it with as much glögg (similar to mulled wine or glühwein, but sweeter) as you can. Now wipe it off, and apply the rub. I use my own Hank's KC Royale rub.

    Now on to the smoker for 3 hours. Keep 120-130° C (250-265° F). I use cherry wood for smoke flavor, 2-3 chunks. Once inner temp hits 65-66° C (149-152° F) it is time to bring it in. Let it rest for 30-60 minutes on the cutting board in room temp.

    Now mix the batter, consisting of:

    1 egg
    3 tbsp dijon mustard
    3 tbsp bread crumbs

    Brush it on evenly, it should be a thick layer covering the ham. Skip the 'underside'. Now crank up the temp in the smoker to 200° C (400° F), and place the ham (gently so you don't scrape off the batter) back on the smoker. Leave it for 15-20 minutes. The ham is done. Bring it in, slice it, and enjoy some real juicy flavorful ham!

    Hank, over 'n out

    Sir, that looks outstanding! I have to say, I have never thought of injecting Glogg into anything, except myself. I think I may try your recipe for the Christmas ham this year. Sounds delicious.

    That looks incredible.

    This is really interesting, I have never made anything with a batter on the outside. Come to think of it. I have yet to smoke a ham.

      I can highly recommend it! And I use an alcohol free glögg, tastes great! I think that batter on the outside really picks it up a notch.

      Same. Not a big ham guy because I tend to recall the salty boring hams from childhood. There's a world of delicious ham of which I know very little about, and I should change that.

      I totally recommend MH's double smoked recipe if this one scares you. I usually do it in an aluminum pan with a mustard glaze, so I can baste every 20 minutes or so.

      Henrik The ones I’ve gotten have been a bit rounder with the fat cap going most of the way around instead of just sitting on top.

      I think most American hams are from rear leg, the lower thigh of the hog on up to the rear shoulder. So depending on the part of the leg, you get mostly uniformly round (near the top) to a tapered cut (further down). Yours seems a bit smaller in diameter. We have other hams like picnic that come from front legs, but 'ham' typically is the back end.

      Yep, ham must come from the rear leg.

    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

    the good one grill

    The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

    Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it.

Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.
