        Your ham looks great. I usually do a spiral ham on Christmas Eve but not this year. Wouldn’t you know it I have a bunch of pre surgery testing on Christmas Eve for surgery on the 28th.
        I cheat though and use food netting to keep the slices from flopping. Your bourbon, peach, and pecan glaze sounds delicious.
        Darn nice looking cook.

          I cooked them on a elevated rack cut side down to keep them from falling apart. Prayers that your surgery goes well.

        Not doing ham, but, still doing pork. Planning on doing pork spareribs this year with baked beans and coleslaw.

        Looks great, I plan on double smoking a ham with a bourbon glaze. Not sure when it will get done, Christmas doesn't fall on my days off so I have to work both Christmas Eve and Christmas day.

          I'm going to double smoke a ham ... maybe today, despite the crappy weather. I want to share a big chunk of it with good neighbors who have had a tough time lately, so it needs to get done a bit early. That peach-pecan-bourbon glaze sounds mighty tasty -- I have some homemade peach butter to use.

            Got my ham in the Hasty Bake a couple of hours ago, but !!!whoo boy!!! the wind is fierce today -- 20-35 mph. I'm going to end up using about twice the charcoal briquettes that I'd use on a calm day. But the ham looks delicious so far -- hope my mouth agrees with my eyes!

            Thanks to all the folks on AR, I still haven't decided what glaze to use. I can't do anything with bourbon because one of my family members is a recovering alcoholic. It's not about the alcohol, but I don't want the flavor to trigger her.

              DavidNorcross - I haven't done a ham in ages. I think I'm scarred from growing up with a Betty Crocker/Good Housekeeping Mom who put canned pineapple rings, maraschino cherries, and cloves on hams. We always had a ham on Easter.

              Which begs the question, why do we serve ham on the religious holidays that commemorate The King of The Jews?

              Hi Bkhuna while I have an answer to that question I will refrain due to forum guidelines. Merry Christmas

            I bought my first country ham for this Christmas. I've never had anything but city hams so I'm looking forward to experiencing the difference.

              Yup. I started soaking as soon as it arrived this morning. It should be ready to stick in the oven tomorrow morning.

              I love country hams. I spent some time in Southern Spain and think I ate ham at least once or twice a day.

              Best of luck.

              It turned out great. I'm glad we tried it.
