“Searching the Zaar, there are no recipe's on cooking relatively "small" hams on the BBQ, so thought I would postmy plan for a feast tomorrow for a small crowd”
2hrs 15mins

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 12 lbs american ham, bone in, rind on
  • 16 ounces dark beer
  • 3 tablespoons chopped garlic


  1. I'm trying this out, so please feel free to comment!
  2. I'm taking my small bone in ham, and soaking it with a dark beer overnight with the garlic.
  3. Will place this on the BBQ tomorrow, on the "cool" side of my gas grill, and add a pile of soaked hickory chips on the "hot" side, and close the hood, allowing the ham to bhe "double smoked", skin, fat and all!
  4. Will cook to an internal tempy of 145, and I know the exterior will be "dore" (ie golden).
  5. As its smoking hot and humid here today and tomorrow, will try a Zaar potato salad recipe, my "Ultimate Beans" as a warm and spicey accompaniment, and some simple garden veggies (green pepper, cucumber, tomato, celery, radish, etc) along with a creamy PunchBowl Herb and Dill Dip --
  6. And carry up to the hospital where my wife works and serve it to the staff on a hot humid Sunday -- .
