This is the best ham you will ever eat. It is slow cooked with tropical fruit and it will fall apart when ready to eat. No more old salty dry ham ever again. OK here is how we do it.

Take a ham like you get at your local grocery store already smoked and cured. Place it in a turkey roaster bag. Then take one can of Dole Tropical Fruit and pour over the ham Now seal the bag up and place in your smokin tex.

Now set the temp for 200 degrees for a nice long slow cook. The internal temp should be 165 when done. Remove the ham and let rest for 20 to 30 minutes.
Remove the ham from the bag and place on large serving platter. Spoon the fruit along side the ham . Now dig in and eat!!!!!!! You will go Wild over this ham.

Ingredients: 1 Ham already smoked and cured
1 15.25 oz of Dole tropical fruit
1 Turkey Roasting Bag

There you have it folks ! A simple but great way to fix your next ham.

Sounds great!! How long did you cook it for? I have taken big boneless pork ribs, simmered them in pineapple juice for about 30 minutes then threw them on the smoker and they were wonderful. As they were partially cooked, I only put them on at 200 for a couple of hours, pulled them off and washed them with KC BBQ sauce mixed with some of the pineapple juice,wrapped them in foil and put them back in for another hour. MMMMMM good...

In addition to the length of time smoked, what do you recommend using to close the turkey bag?

Sounds great, cannot wait to try this!

Thanks in advance! :D

Probably the ties that come with the turkey bag. They are plastic, but heat resistant.

Wild Smoke,

I take it that you skip the smoking wood since the ham is closed up in a plastic bag and won't absorb smoke? Correct?
