Damn, that ham looks awesome Devo. With a fully cooked ham, can I get away with habs recipe?  Oven at 300 bake until IT of 100, them crank it to 450 and follow the rest?  It won't dry out?

Devo;

Sorry to hear about your loss.
...haven't decided whether to bone it, cook in whole, or divide it into two hams.

Easy decision:  Divide it in two and send me half.

If you were in the Continental U.S., I would be happy to ship you half.  :) Though at this time I'm leaning toward curing it whole first then bone it out.

He has this one on the recipe site. Is this the one?

Glaze Ingredients: Glaze and roasting recipe adapted from Cook's Illustrated for the Bradley Smoker.
3/4 C. Maple Powder Sugar
3/4 C. Pineapple Juice
1/4 C. Brown Sugar, or 1 cup if you are not using the Maple sugar
1/3 C Dijon Mustard
1/4 C. Whole Grain Mustard


What is Maple Powder Sugar? And where would you get it?  Thanks! Recipe sounds really good!

Maple Sugar Powder is maple syrup evaporated down to produce sugar. The easiest place to fine Maple Sugar Powder (Maple Sugar Granules will also work), is the internet. I live in Maple Syrup Country, so I buy it at farmer's markets, specialty stores, or health food stores.

Here is one online store that sells Maple Sugar. I'm sure if you search you can find better deals.

Over the past few years the price has sky rocketed, due to low sap runs. If you see a price that looks to good to be true, look at the label closely; it is probably cut with brown sugar. If I'm recalling correctly, 1 pound of maple sugar will make 3 pounds of maple syrup, or about 3 pints.

Sandy I get my Maple Powder from www.targil.com it's a little cheaper than then where Habs gets his. They don't have a high tech website. So I find it easier to pick up the phone and call my order in to them.

Thanks Hab's and 10.5!  I must of had a brain toot last night(after looking at Keymasters's pinto stock  ;D )  I kept thinking of something like white confectioners sugar and my little brain couldn't wrap around what I was reading.  I know it was discussed before too!  Thanks again!

I get mine from local farmer's markets, local specialty stores, and local health food store. The price is much cheaper then the website I provided the link for.
