Easter Ham
« on: April 08, 2012, 08:28:47 AM »
We're having a get together today for Easter. Joel told me he had a ham that was so huge there was no chance he'd ever use it so stop over and get it for dinner today. So Tuesday Patty shows up with a frozen hard as a rock uncured ham. Hmmmm what to do so I decided to brine it in some cure which is salt, pink salt, brown sugar and various herbs and spices. It won't be a totally cured ham but should be pretty tasty none the less.



Got up at 5AM to start it cooking on my xl egg. Used some peach and apple chunks for the smoke....more later.

I cooked a Ham and a Boneless rib end Pork roast on my pit while leaving the oven for the rest of the fixings.
The Ham was cut up into a few large chunks and put over a bed of baby carrots in a tin and covered with pineapple slices.  I had used a cup of 7 up for liquid in the bottom of the tin.  Covered the aluminum tin with foil and let er bake on the hot coals.  It was a hit.
The pork roast I had to tend and after it was cooked I put it in a Texas Crutch with sautéed onions and mushrooms.  It turned out good.
My daughter made an awesome recipe of Mac and cheese she got off the Internet.  Then we had sweet taters covered with marshmallows, green bean casserole, regular mashed taters.  I had a heaping plate full and didn't go back for seconds.

Didn't or couldn't go back for seconds.  For me on Sunday, I couldn't because I was too full after the first loading.

It was pretty good Charlie but could have used more time in the brine. The outer 4"s was cured like you'd expect a ham to be but the interior was more like a normal pork roast.

All that was left was the big bone, Charlie, so it must have been pretty tasty.  :)

Today that ham bone is being used in some bean soup. Yummy!
