I just butchered a hog and want to smoke one of the hams. Ham is about 10#. What ideas do you have for doing a fresh ham, thanks

Never done a fresh ham but have read about it. Remember that what you get from the store has been both cured & smoked. From my reading, the curing process takes 7-10 days. The smoking process is slow. My guess would be to set smoker temp at about 180* and shoot for an internal of near 160* or so. BUT, "that's just a guess!" Do some reading. If you decide to go for it, please take notes and post them here or the rest of us to see.

Goo luck! ;)

Internal temp should be 150
