Maple Bourbon Honey Ham

One of the easiest holiday dinners you can prepare for your family and friends is a Ham. They are already fully cooked and smoked, so all you have to do is heat it up. But instead of risking drying it out in your oven bring it up to serving temperature in your smoker. That way you can add an additional layer of smokey flavor. To take it to the next level apply a simple glaze of consisting of pure Maple Syrup, Bourbon and Honey. Everyone will be so impressed. Just don't tell them how easy it was to prepare.


Precooked Smoked Ham

1/2 cup pure Maple Syrup

1/2 cup Honey

1/2 cup Bourbon Whiskey

4 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Juice in a spray bottle

Fire up your smoker to anywhere from 225-275 degrees and allow to come to temperature. Remove the Ham from its packaging. Place Ham on smoker and spray occasionally with Apple Juice to keep it moist. Allow to cook while you make the glaze.

Make your glaze by mixing the Maple Syrup, Honey, Bourbon and Apple Cider Vinegar in a saucepan. Heat on medium low heat to bring to a simmer. Allow to thicken and stir occasionally.

Once the Ham reaches an internal temperature of 130-135 degrees start to apply the glaze. Apply several times and allow the glaze to caramelize. Ham is ready to serve once it reaches a temperature of 145 degrees. Slice and enjoy!
