Home Made Q Ham
This recipe makes the best ham it is quick and easy to prepare. You can experiment with it to add different flavours or smoke it whilst you are cooking it. I use pre-packaged pickle pork (pork neck) from Safeways. Alternately you can ask your butcher to pickle a piece of neck for you.

1.2 – 1.5 Kg pickled pork
Glaze
1 level tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon water or
a couple of tablespoons of honey instead (my preference)


Rinse the pork under running water for about a minute to remove any surface salt and pat dry. Lightly brush the pork with oil. Preheat the Q on high for 10 minutes. Place the meat on a roasting trivet over a doubled over sheet of foil. Turn the Q down to a medium high setting and roast for about 1 hour. Mix the sugar and water together and microwave for 20 seconds (this will ensure that the sugar is dissolved) or use the honey, Glaze the meat by brushing well with the glaze. Continue cooking and glazing every 10 minutes until the internal meat temperature is 77 C. Total cooking time should be about 1 hour 30 minutes. Rest the ham for 10 minutes before carving.

Just got home from Woolworth's with a 1.5 picked pork, followed the recipe took about three hours to get to 170deg in my kettle, used combination honey and maple syrup wow easy and yum, sorry no pics, I had a huge fail last week wasting three kilos of pork using the Aussie BBQ smoke recipe for turn pork into ham, it was so salty after the ten days in the brine straight in the bin :cry: but this is very nice and easy will be doing it again and again thanks to Author easy peeasy

That's great but if you do it again, please buy it from a decent butcher. Woolies and Coles are not places to buy good meat from.

Did this tonight on Baby Q, little foil pack of smoke wood and glazed with honey with a dribble of balsamic for last half hour.
Magnificent, will be done a lot more in future.
