Smoked Pecan Praline Honey Ham

Pecan Praline Ham
This has become a favorite at our house. You will need a 1500 Series Smoker (larger) for a 18 to 20 lb. Whole Ham, or you can do a 10 or 11 lb. Half Ham in the 1400. Just cut the recipe in half for the half ham. A heavy duty Injection Needle would also be beneficial. Use your drip pan as a roasting pan, and place ham inside. Let any liquid packed with the ham go in the pan. For the half ham, place cut side down.

1 Smithfield Fully Cooked Whole or Half Ham

2 Cups Dark Corn Syrup (Karo)
1/2 Cup Water
2 Tbs. Light Brown Sugar
2 Tbs. Molasses
1/2 Tsp.;Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp. Ground Cloves
4 Tbs. Honey
1 Cup Pecan Halfs
2 Cups Light Brown Sugar
Whole Cloves (optional)

Chop half of the pecans and mix with the 2 Cups Light Brown Sugar. Score ham and rub this mixture all over. In a small bowl, mix the Water, 2 Tbs. Light Brown Sugar, Molasses, Ground Cinnamon, Ground Cloves, and Honey until well blended. Add Corn Syrup and stir well. Slowly inject ham all over, reserving a small amount of the marinade. Decorate with pecan halfs and whole cloves, if you like, and drizzle with reserved Marinade. Smoke at 200F degrees for five hours over 3 ozs. Apple chunks. Tent with foil and let rest for 30 minutes. Spoon pan sauce over slices when serving."
