Smoking a ham

Post by supertruckie » Sun Dec 01, 2013 10:20 am

Hi all, I'll be smoking a ham in the next couple of weeks, would cherry pellets with some chunks of cherry wood be ok on a ham? I've never used cherry before, not sure how strong it is...Thanks

That would be like feeding strawberrys to pigs.
I would if I had cherry wood :wink:
If trees screamed when we cut them down, We wouldn't. If they screamed all the time we would.

Well all I can say is a big "YUM". That cherry really puts some flavor into the meat, will be using it again I think.
Sorry I don't have any pics, just did a standard brine of salt & brown sugar with the recommended amount of kwikcure, then cold smoked for about 4 hours while the bride took me to lunch....got them into the oven at about 120c for a good slow cook & they're the best ones I've done yet.
Will have to get my mate to prune off a few more cherry trees this year..... :D :D
