How long do I need to cook a Butt end cured ham on my Orion cooker?

by jeff

I have never cooked a ham on my Orion. I can't find anything on the internet or on your site that talks directly about cooking a cured ham in the Orion like how long to cook it etc.

Can you give me the basics? I have been soaking the ham for several hours in water and will be cooking it tomorrow afternoon for Christmas dinner tomorrow night. it is a 10 lb ham.



Hey Jeff, no pressure then? Cooking a ham for Christmas dinner tomorrow night and not a clue how to do it!

Hopefully I can put you in the right direction.

I have to make the assumption that you know what you are doing with your Orion cooker so that should you feel the need to adapt either of my recipes below then you can take the necessary action.

Firstly here's one of my favorite barbecue ham recipes that's packed with honey and mustard and then laced with a little whisky too.

If that one doesn't suit then I've got another smoked ham recipe for you but this one has even more alcohol in it and it does require a two day marinade time so maybe not enough time if you're needing the finished product for Christmas dinner.

Here's hoping that you have a great Christmas!
