This is my go to smoke for a lot of reasons but mostly because Caitlin requests this at least 2 times per year. But the best part is that this is reallllllly easy and you can’t mess it up!
So let’s get started:
First of all, similar to our double smoked turkey, we are buying a pre-cooked, spiral, sliced ham which I am sure we have all bought at one point in time at our local grocery store. You also want to grab a can of sliced pineapple rings. (Shopping done! Assuming you have some other BBQ essentials at home, of course!)
You’re going to start by rubbing the ham down with some mustard and our BBQ rub. I like the spiral sliced ham because you can get the rub into all the little slices. On this one the ham was sliced so deep it did not want to stay together so we simply used some large toothpicks to hold it together.Once it is assembled we want to attach our pineapple rings all over the ham (the more the better) and then sprinkle a little brown sugar on them with some more of our BBQ rub.Next, get the smoker to 225-250 and throw it on indirect heat with some apple wood chips. I also loaded a water spray bottle with apple juice to spray it every 30 minutes or so to keep it moist. Here is the best part: it can be done within 2 hours but if you want to keep it on for 5-6 hours you can. Remember, the ham is already cooked, you are simply just warming it up and adding some smoke flavor.Once you have a nice smoke bark on the ham and the pineapple is dark, pull it off and slice and serve just like Christmas. This past time we made it Caitlin and I threw the ham on a nice roll with a piece of pineapple on it and it was dynamite!
There it is all done with no sides just meat and dessert all in one cook!
