Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 275°F/135°C with Big Green Egg smoking chips. We recommend the apple smoking chips.

Score the fat portion of the ham in a checkerboard pattern, making cuts approximately 1 inch apart, and 1 inch deep.

Cook for approximately 1 hour for 2 lbs. of weight. During the last hour of cooking, brush ham with the glaze. Remove when the ham has reached the internal temperature of 155- 160°F/68 – 70°C.

Let the ham rest before serving
