Glazed Holiday Ham


Chef Tom breaks down the few simple steps to taking your standard pre-cooked ham and turning it into a holiday meal masterpiece. A little smoke and a sweet mustard glaze take this ham to amazing heights.

Holiday Ham


  • 1 fully cooked, spiral sliced smoked ham
  • 2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Grannie’s Jalapeño Mustard
  • 1/2 cup Kosmo’s Q Killer Bee Honey Chipotle Rub
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar


Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 to 350ºF. Fill an A-MAZE-N Tube Smoker with your favorite type of wood pellets, place the tube on the grate just above the fire box and light the end with a torch.

In a bowl combine the brown sugar, mustard, rub and vinegar and mix well.

Place ham in a foil pan and transfer to the cooker. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 100ºF. Times will vary depending on the size of the ham, so be sure to use an instant read thermometer to monitor the internal temperature. Brush the glaze evenly over the ham.

Continue to glaze the ham every 30 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 135ºF.

    Do you need to let the ham get up to room temperature before placing on the grill? Or is straight out of the fridge ok?
