Smoked Butt Portion Ham
Every year around Christmas and/or Thanksgiving I always shop my local grocery store to see what kind of deals I can find on hams, turkeys, and small turkey breasts. Found a nice traditional bone-in fully cooked hickory smoked butt portion ham. Best part is that the ham was one of those loss leader items whose purpose is to entice shoppers into their store. Who doesn't love a Buy One Get One Free ham? Picked up a couple of hams around Christmas and tossed them into the freezer. Yesterday was time to use one of them. Make sure to be safe by planning ahead and defrosting your meats and poultry in the refrigerator.
Love my GMG Davy Crockett Wi-Fi Controlled Wood Pellet Smoker Grill for smaller meals and/or one of a kind items. This ham is a perfect size over my MAK 2 Star grill. Been using my Davy Crockett at home and on the road in our RV. Transferring the grill back and forth between the 2 gets old after a while. Therefore I have ordered the new GMG Trek Wi-Fi Controlled Portable Wood Pellet Tailgating Grill for exclusive use in the RV. Can't wait to take delivery on the new Trek and use it on the road.
Preheated my Green Mountain Grills Davy Crockett Wi-Fi controlled wood pellet smoker to 200°F using CookinPellets.com Premium 100% Hickory wood pellets. Smoked the Butt Portion Ham for 2 hours to enhance the flavor of the fully cooked ham. After 2 hours of smoke, I bumped the pit temperature to 325°F until the internal temperature of the ham reached 130°F. Rested the hickory smoked ham for 15 minutes loosely under a foil tent before serving ... Times listed above are for planning purposes only - Always cook to your desired internal temperature.
