Smoked Honey Mustard Glazed Ham


  • 1 pre-cooked bone-in ham (8-10 pounds)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 3 teaspoons Ground Pounder Garlic Seasoning
  • Wood chips for smoking (hickory, apple, or cherry work well)


Prepare the Ham:

Preheat your grill or smoker to 250°F (120°C). If using a charcoal grill, set it up for indirect grilling by placing the coals on one side of the grill.

Remove the ham from its packaging and place it on a large cutting board. Using a sharp knife, score the surface of the ham in a diamond pattern about 1/4 inch deep.

Prepare the Glaze:

In a small saucepan, combine the honey, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, apple cider vinegar, smoked paprika, and Ground Pounder.

Heat the glaze over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is well combined. Remove from heat and set aside.

Smoke the Ham:

If using a charcoal grill, add the wood chips directly to the coals. If using a gas grill or smoker, follow the manufacturer's instructions for adding wood chips.

Place the scored ham directly on the grill grate, on the side opposite the heat source. Close the lid and let the ham smoke for about 1 hour.

Apply the Glaze:

After the ham has smoked for 1 hour, use a basting brush to generously coat the surface of the ham with the honey mustard glaze.

Continue to cook the ham, basting with the glaze every 30 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 140°F (60°C), about 3-4 hours total cooking time.

Rest and Serve:

Once the ham reaches the desired temperature, carefully remove it from the grill and transfer it to a cutting board. Tent it loosely with foil and let it rest for 15-20 minutes before slicing.

Slice the ham and serve with any remaining glaze on the side. Enjoy your delicious smoked honey mustard glazed ham!

This ham is perfect for Easter dinner and will be sure to impress your guests with its smoky flavor and sweet, tangy glaze.
