Holiday Ham with Apple and Bourbon Glaze

Conveniently pre-cured, pre-smoked, and pre-cooked, hams are the no-fuss way to serve a crowd which is why they typically make an appearance on most holiday tables. Here at Traeger we like to do a little more than just feed our crowd, we like to feed our crowd with that signature smoky flavor you can only get cooking over a wood fire. This recipe for a delicious Holiday Ham with an Apple and Bourbon Glaze knocks the socks off that sugary-sweet flavor pouch that came in the package while still maintaining the ease of serving a pre-cooked, pre-sliced ham. Put this Traeger'ed ham on your holiday table and you'll be the most popular person at the party!


Holiday Ham with Apple and Bourbon Glaze


Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15-18 minutes per pound of ham
Recommended Pellets: Apple, Cherry, Hickory, Oak

1 fully cooked ham or half-ham
1 to 2 cups apple juice or cider
1 cup apple jelly
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 to 2 tablespoons bourbon
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground clove


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 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Arrange the ham on a rack in a roasting pan. Pour the apple juice or in the bottom of the pan. Place on the Traeger and close the lid.

Timewise, allow 15 to 18 minutes per pound for a half-ham, and 10 to 15 minutes per pound for a whole ham.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt the apple jelly. Whisk in the mustard, bourbon, lemon juice, and ground clove and remove from the heat. Brush over the outside of the ham 40 to 50 minutes before you expect the ham to be done.
