Double Smoked Ham Recipe


  • 1 fully cooked bone-in ham (8-10 pounds)
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Pogey Bait Sweet Honey Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves


Prepare the Ham:

Preheat your smoker to 225°F (107°C).


Trim the Ham:

If there is a thick layer of skin or excess fat on the ham, trim it down to about 1/4 inch.


Score the Ham:

Use a sharp knife to score the surface of the ham in a diamond pattern, about 1/4 inch deep. This will allow the flavors to penetrate the meat.


Prepare the Glaze:

In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, Sweet Honey Sauce, Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, dried thyme, and ground cloves. Mix well to form a smooth glaze.


Apply the Glaze:

Brush the glaze all over the scored ham, making sure to get the glaze into the cuts you made.


Smoke the Ham:


Place the glazed ham on the smoker grate, fat side up.
Smoke the ham at 225°F (107°C) for about 3-4 hours, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 140°F (60°C). Baste the ham with the glaze every hour.


Rest and Serve:

Once the ham reaches the desired internal temperature, remove it from the smoker and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes before slicing.
Serve the double smoked ham slices with the remaining glaze on the side.


Optional: Add a finishing touch:

Before serving, you can give the ham a quick broil in the oven to caramelize the glaze and add a beautiful finish.
