1 Smithfield Fully Cooked Whole or Half Ham

This has become a favorite at our house. You will need a 1500 Series Smoker for a 18 to 20 lb. Whole Ham, or you can do a 10 or 11 lb. Half Ham in the 1400. Just cut the Recipe in half for the Half Ham. A heavy duty Injection Needle would also be beneficial. Use your Drip Pan as a Roasting Pan, and place Ham inside. Let any liquid packed with the Ham go in the Pan. For the Half Ham, place cut side down.

2 Cups Dark Corn Syrup (Karo)
1/2 Cup Water
2 Tbs. Light Brown Sugar
2 Tbs. Molasses
1/2 Tsp.;Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp. Ground Cloves
4 Tbs. Honey
1 Cup Pecan Halfs
2 Cups Light Brown Sugar
Whole Cloves (optional)

Chop half of the Pecans and mix with the 2 Cups Light Brown Sugar. Score Ham and rub this mixture all over. In a small bowl, mix the Water, 2 Tbs. Light Brown Sugar, Molasses, Ground Cinnamon, Ground Cloves, and Honey until well blended. Add Corn Syrup and stir well. Slowly inject Ham all over, reserving a small amount of the Marinade. Decorate with Pecan Halfs and Whole Cloves, if you like, and drizzle with reserved Marinade. Smoke at 200 degrees for five hours over 3 ozs. Apple Chunks. Tent with Foil and let rest for 30 minutes. Spoon Pan Sauce over Slices when serving.

Big Shoutout to Cajun Boy. Tried this with a 20 pounder and it was the absolute Best ham. Didn't realize I had picked up a spiral cut that big, but it was an we are still enjoying it. Sent some home with guest and vacuum packed a lot to freeze. Thanks again and if you haven't tried it, do so you won't regret it!
