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.
Score ham in diamond pattern with knife and push cloves into center of scored diamond. Place ham into a large cast iron pan, and take to Traeger.
Cook for approximately 2 hours, or until thermometer (place thermometer in the thickest part of the meat, without touching the bone) reads an internal temperature of 125 degrees F.
For the bourbon BBQ sauce: In a sauce pan, combine garlic, onion and whiskey. Bring to a simmer for 5 minutes, add all other ingredients and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for approximately 20 minutes. Run sauce through a strainer and reserve.
When ham has reached an internal temperature of 125 degrees F, take it off the grill and baste with one-third of the bourbon BBQ sauce.
Raise grill temperature to 375 degrees F and preheat with the lid closed.
Let ham rest for approximately 20 minutes before carving. Enjoy!
