Jimmy's Smoked Ham

Diane Hopson Smith


It doesn't get better than hickory smoked! We have hickory trees on our property so we cut our own. It's fun taking a stroll in the woods to look for hickory especially when all the leaves have fallen from the trees.

Jimmy built a very unique smoker/grill, you can smoke several pieces of meat at one time. BTW you don't have to have a home built smoker for this to work.

Placing a turkey breast slightly under the ham and letting the drippings from the ham drip on to the breast, adds a wonderful flavor to the turkey.

This ham soaked in coke alway turns out awesome!

5 Hr




10-lb uncooked ham
1 or 2
2 liter coke
seasoning salt

Directions Step-By-Step

Remove ham for refrigerater. Place in a large pot with coke and seaoning salt. Soak for 3 to 4 hours. NOTE: I soaked over night in the fridge.
Meanwhile soak hickory in water. NOTE: we cut our own hickery and soaked over night.
Place coals in smoker and fire them up. Once hot; place ham in smoker; add wet hickory on top of burning coals (this will smoke and that's what you want it to do). Add additional coals as needed.
Smoke for about 5 hours. Slice and serve.

NOTE: If you are unsure of the status of your smoked ham, then heating the ham until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees will ensure that it is safe to eat.
