Get your armor on, you're going to have to stand guard over this coveted holiday ham. Apple Cider glaze makes it impossible to keep grubby little paws off of the Traeger-baked ham. Try to squirrel away some left-overs, sandwiches are sweet hogtastic the next day.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups plus 1 cup for roasting the ham Apple Cider
  • 1/4 cup Bourbon
  • 1/4 cup Dijon-Style Mustard
  • 1/4 cup Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. Ground Cloves
  • 1 pinch Ground Nutmeg or Allspice
  • 3 Apples, Washed, Cored, Cut into thick Slices
  • 1 large Ham
  • 3 cups plus 1 cup for roasting the ham Apple Cider
  • 1/4 cup Bourbon
  • 1/4 cup Dijon-Style Mustard
  • 1/4 cup Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. Ground Cloves
  • 1 pinch Ground Nutmeg or Allspice
  • 3 Apples, Washed, Cored, Cut into thick Slices
  • 1 large Ham

Preparation

For the glaze, combine the 3 cups of apple cider and bourbon in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil until the liquids are reduced by one-third.

Whisk in the mustard, honey, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Set aside. Line a roasting pan with heavy-duty foil for easier clean-up.

Arrange the apple slices in the pan for a natural roasting rack. Put the ham on top of the apple slices and pour the 1 cup of apple cider around the ham.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 325 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Place ham in large roasting pan lined with aluminum foil. Place pan on grill and cook for 1.5 hours. 

Open Grill and glaze ham with reserved mixture. Continue cooking for another 30 minutes or until a thermometer is inserted into the thickest part of the meat and reaches an internal temperatures of 135 degrees F. 

Remove ham from grill and allow to rest for 20 minutes before serving.

Warm remaining sauce and serve with ham if desired. Enjoy!
