Honey Glazed Smoked Ham (by Derrick Riches)

  • 1 6-lb. “ready to eat” ham
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  1. The night before you smoke, mix together the pepper, paprika, sugar, salt, 1 teaspoon of dry mustard and cayenne.  Rub over the surface of the ham, wrap in foil and let sit in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. In the morning, remove the ham from the refrigerator and let it sit for 1 hour, then remove foil.
  3. In the meantime, prepare your smoker, and preheat to about 210°F.  You will be smoking at about 210°F for 6 hours.
  4. Mix together the chicken stock, 3/4 cups of pineapple juice, vegetable oil, 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, and cloves. Warm the liquid over medium heat until completely mixed.
  5. Place ham in smoker, and smoke for 6 hours, basting with sauce once every hour.
  6. While the ham is smoking, prepare the glaze by mixing together the honey, 1/4 cup pineapple juice, 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard and a pinch of ground cloves. Brush generously with glaze a couple of times during the last hour of smoking.  Enjoy!
