Directions
Watch how to make this recipe. Sweet Holiday Glaze:
  • Season the ham with dry rub. Place plastic wrap over ham and put in refrigerator. Allow the seasoning to penetrate the ham overnight to give it a fuller flavor.

  • Using indirect heat, preheat your grill to 250 degrees F. with hickory chips and charcoal.

  • Place ham in an aluminum roasting pan and place on grill grates. Let smoke for 3 hours, making sure the temperature remains at 250 degrees F; adding more hickory chips and charcoal, as necessary. Remove to a platter.

Sweet Holiday Glaze:
  • Place all ingredients into a saucepan over medium heat. Allow to simmer, cooking for 10 to 15 minutes, until the glaze is syrupy.

  • Pour the warm glaze over the warm ham and serve immediately.

Neelys Dry Rub Seasoning:
  • Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
