We love to smoke meat, pork and chicken, but a smoked ham shank is one of our favorite things to enjoy, and the leftovers are incredible. You can also smoke a ham on a grill, just use indirect heat with wood on your coals.

3Smoke ham at 350° until internal temp reaches 160-170°, it usually takes about 30 min. per pound. Using a digital thermometer will give you a more accurate temp than other non digital types. (We normally use mesquite or hickory)

4After you remove from smoker, allow to cool 15-20 min. before slicing. Smoking a cured ham is one of our favorite things to do. Leftovers have never been so good.
