Prep Time

Cook Time


  • Foil Pan
  • Smoker
  • Bear Mountain BBQ pellets


  • 11 Lbs Ham ((Spiral cut))
  • Yellow Mustard ((Choice of seasoning - Meaty Mike loves Lumberjack Hickory Maple Seasoning from PS Seasoning))
  • Glaze 

  • 1 Cup Cherry Preserves
  • 1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Bourbon
  • 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Honey


  • Take the spiral cut ham out of the package. Rinse the pre-packaged brine solution off the ham under cool water. Pat dry.

  • Lightly cover the ham with yellow mustard for a binder.

  • Add your choice of seasoning.

  • Smoke the ham in your grill or smoker at 275 °F with a mix of Cherry, Maple, and Bourbon Bear Mountain BBQ pellets.

  • While your ham cooks, make the glaze. Mix all the ingredients together in a pan over medium-high heat for 10 minutes. Stir often.

  • Take the glaze off the heat and let it cool at room temperature.

  • Smoke the ham for about three hours until you hit an internal temperature of 130 °F. The ham is already cured/cooked. We’re just reheating and double smoking it.

  • Put the ham in a foil pan and cover it in the glaze.

  • Smoke again until the ham hits an internal temperature of 140 °F. This will take another 30-45 minutes.

  • Take off the grill, eat, and enjoy!
