Cooking that Christmas Ham is always my job, and you know I fire up the smoker for this task. A favorite of ours is a double smoked, spiral sliced ham covered in a Raspberry Chipotle glaze. The recipe is super simple and it’s guaranteed to be a huge hit at your Christmas gathering.
Preheat Drum Smoker or any indirect smoker or grill to 275 degrees. Add chunks of cherry wood to hot coals for smoke flavor.
Remove the ham from packaging and place on a half size wire cooling rack.
Place ham on pit and smoke for 2 hours.
In a small sauce pan over medium heat add apple jelly. Cook the jelly until it turns into a liquid stirring often. Add the raspberry chipotle sauce and stir to combine. Reduce heat to low and keep warm.
Apply the glaze over the ham using a basting brush. Continue to cook for 30 minutes or until glaze sets.
Remove the ham from the smoker and rest for 10-15 minutes before serving.
