A Christmas favorite.  Ham that has been pre-smoked and then re-heated/smoked at home to create a flavor-packed smokey and sweet ham perfect for the family table or on some sandwiches!



  • 7lb-8lb Ham
  • 1 cup Honey Hog rub
  • Yellow Mustard (enough to coat the ham)
  • 1/2 cup Bourbon (I use TX since it’s very sweet)
  • 1 cup Brown sugar
  • 1 20oz can Sliced pinapple
  • 1/4 cup Brown mustard


  • Preheat your bbq pit to 275 degrees f, indirect
  • Place ham in an aluminum pan and cut the top of the ham in a criss-cross fashion.  Cut around 1/2″ to 1″ deep.

  • Coat the ham in mustard and evenly apply the Honey Hog seasoning.

  • Place pan in the pit and close for 45 minutes.  After the first hour you should have a ham that looks similar to this:

  • During that first hour combine the bourbon, brown sugar, 1/2 can of pineapple juice and brown mustard in a bowl.  Mix well, this is going to be the glaze.
  • After the 45 minute mark, use a brush to glaze the ham.  Close the pit and continue to cook.
  • 15 minutes later add pineapple slices with toothpicks and continue to add glaze to the ham.

  • Continue to glaze every 15 minutes.  After another 45 minutes check the temperature of the ham, you should be around 140°, if not, glaze and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
  • Repeat this process until you hit the desired temperature.


Use the leftover liquid to create a sauce (there should be at least 3 cups of liquid in the pan).  You can leave it as is or transfer it to a pan and add a corn starch slurry to the drippings!
