Smoked Ham is one of those new family favorites I really can’t believe I wanted this long to try out! We make smoked Prime Rib or Smoked Turkey on most holidays. Not much of a stretch or surprise that smoking ham was the next step.

Now we typically tend to put the ham in the crockpot; see how to -> here since the kids are the main ones who love the ham for dinner. We had an extra one from sales, so we tried it out on the smoker. You can smoke this on any smoker. I made mine on a Pitboss Pro 1100.
Smoked Ham Ingredients:
- Ham-– I tend not to use a spiral ham when smoking. The meat is tender, and I always worry about it falling apart, trying to take it off the smoker. A spiral ham will work; be careful removing it from the smoker.
- Pineapple– You can use fresh or canned pineapple; I use the chunks out of the can.
How To Smoke A Ham On A Pitboss Pellet Grill:
Get your smoker rolling smoke. I used my Pit Boss Pro 1100 from Lowe’s to make this. If you haven’t checked out Pit Boss, you need to; they are comparable to Traegers and a fraction of the price. If you don’t have Lowes, Walmart and Amazon carry other Pit Boss options or Pit Boss websites themselves. You can also make smoked ham on an electric or charcoal smoker.
I set my Pit Boss smoker at 225 degrees with a p setting of P7.
Once your smoker is at temperature and rolling, set your ham onto or in your smoker.
Take toothpicks and stab pieces of pineapple into the ham. You could skip this step, but it adds a nice sweetness to the ham.
A good rule of thumb is about 15 to 20 minutes of smoking per lb. I smoked my 15 lb ham for 4 hours, and it was done.
Serve and enjoy!!
How Long To Smoke a Ham
Typically at 225 degrees, it will take 20 minutes a pound to smoke.
Smoking at higher temperatures will allow the ham to cook faster.
AT WHAT TEMPERATURE IS HAM DONE?
Ham only needs an internal temperature of 145 degrees. I remove mine at 140 and allow it to rest; the ham will continue to warm up after removing it from the heat source.
HOW TO STORE LEFTOVER HAM
Remove your ham from the bone and trim any excess fat. Cut the leftover ham pieces and store them in an air-tight container. This can be in an airtight container or a zip-lock bag. You can keep the bone in leftover ham recipes or toss the bone. A ham bone can not be given to dogs; it is unsafe for dogs to chew on it as it will break and harm their digestive system.
Ham can be stored in the fridge for up to five days or frozen for up to 3 months.
