Smoked Ham Shank

Lynn Socko


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.

How to Make Smoked Ham Shank


  1. Cured, bone in ham shank, this is the brand we buy.
  2. Cut cross ways through the skin of the shank, then cut cross ways in the opposite direction.
  3. Smoke 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)
  4. After 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.
