Smoking a fresh ham for christmas

hawkhandler | Dec 5, 2011 08:44 PM

hello,

i'm picking up a fresh ham on the 13th to start brining it for dinner Christmas Eve. I plan to brine it for a full 10 days and smoke it to 140F with some hickory and applewood and a honey and mustard glaze towards the end. i've never done a fresh ham before and just want to know if anyone has any experience with this and to let me know if there is anything i might want to be ready for.

thanks in advance.
