Brown Sugar Honey Glazed Ham – Tender and juicy bone-in ham smoked twice and covered with a sweet glaze. Perfect for the holidays!
- 1 spiral cut bone-in smoked ham (8 to 10 pounds)
- 1 recipe Amy’s Ham Glaze (see below)
- 2 cups apple juice
Amy’s Ham Glaze:
- 1/2 stick of butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup Apple juice
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons bourbon
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- Pinch of salt
- Fire your grill to with charcoal configured in a indirect setup. We put charcoal on two sides of the grill with the indirect in the center. The grill temp should be around 250 degrees.
- Add soaked apple wood chunks to the coals.
- Prepare the ham by removing all the packaging. Set aside any seasoning packets.
- Put the ham into a foil pan and place it on the grill.
- Cook the ham under smoke for about 30 – 60 minutes.
- While the ham is smoking, prepare the glaze.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, add the butter, sugar, apple juice, honey, Dijon mustard. Whisk until combined.
- Bring the glaze up to heat. Then add bourbon, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir to combine.
- Allow the glaze to simmer (very slow boil) until it thickens. This could take up to 20 minutes.
- When the glaze is thickened, remove from the heat and set aside to cool. It should thicken as it cools.
- After about an hour, add some apple juice to the foil pan.
- Cover the foil pan tightly with a sheet of foil.
- Continue to cook in the covered pan for about an hour until the ham reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees.
- About 15 minutes before the ham is done, remove the foil cover and glaze.
- Cover the grill and cook until the glaze is set.
- Once it is done, remove from the grill and allow it to rest about 15 to 30 minutes.
- Slice and enjoy!
