Nothing pairs more perfectly than ham and pineapple and this pineapple glaze for smoked ham recipe does not disappoint! Pairing pineapple, ginger, honey, rum, pineapple preserves and a splash of rice wine vinegar, this glaze is oh-so-good on ham and also ham biscuits the next day for a post holiday brunch!
- 1 8-pound semi boneless smoked ham
- 1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple (don’t drain the liquid!)
- 2/3 cup honey
- 1 tbsp. fresh grated ginger
- 1 cup pineapple preserves
- 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
- Prepare your Big Green Egg for smoking, using your convEggtor, getting it to a temp of 225-250 degrees.
- Add cherry or apple wood chips to the fire to create additional smoke.
- Place the ham, flat side down, on the indirect side of the grill, letting it grill until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees with an internal read thermometer; this should take about an hour and a half for an 8-pound ham.
- After you have placed the ham on the grill, make your glaze. Combine the crushed pineapple, honey and ginger in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Let the pineapple glaze simmer on medium low for about 20 minutes to combine and reduce down the glaze.
- Once the ham has reached an internal temperature of 135 degrees, go ahead and add half of the glaze to the ham via a basting brush or spoon.
- When the ham has reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees, remove the ham from the grill.
- Slice the ham and serve with additional glaze.
Pro tip: Ham goes great on a biscuit with honey mustard or Carolina Gold style BBQ sauce for breakfast or brunch the next day. Leftover ham is a great for addition to omelets, quiche or adding extra flavor to leafy vegetables like collard greens!
