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


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