Christmas is coming SOON and if you are like my family, Ham is on the menu. I typically buy a raw, green, ham but this year I have been pressed for time and went with a procured ham from the local store.

Course Main Course
Cuisine American
Servings 14


  • 1 Procured ham (6-8 lbs)
  • 4 tbsp Mustard as a binder
  • 1 tbsp Your favorite pork seasoning. (per pound of ham)

Pineapple Bourbon Glaze

  • 2 cups Brown Sugar
  • ¾ cup Pineapple passion fruit jam
  • ¼ cup Spicy brown mustard
  • 1 cup Water
  • ¼ cup Bourbon


  • Start off by getting your procured ham out of the package and drying it off. Now score the ham in a crosshatch technique (or diamond pattern) and then apply the mustard as a binder. Season generously with your favorite pork seasoning.
  • Once seasoned, let it sit for about 20-30 mins. During this time, fire up your smoker and set the temp at 300-325 with applewood chunks for some smoke.
  • Place the ham on the smoke standing straight up and add a drip pan underneath with 3 cups of water.
  • When the ham reaches an internal temp of 125 degrees, begin to make your glaze.
  • In a cold saucepan add in brown sugar, bourbon, spicy brown mustard, pineapple jam and water. Now mix well until you have a smooth consistency. Place on a stove or induction stove at medium heat and simmer for 6-8 mins. Once simmered, keep it on low heat until it's time to glaze the ham.
  • When the ham reaches an internal temp of 130 degrees, set the glaze. Let it smoke until an internal temp of 140 degrees.
  • Remove from the smoke and place on a wire rack with a baking pan under it. Cover loosely with aluminum foil for 25 mins in room temp. 
  • Slice and serve!
  • Enjoy with family and friends!
