This fabulous recipe needs to be started a day ahead of time in the marinade. It's cooked on the grill using the indirect grilling method. Ham cooked on the grill has even more wonderful smoky flavor than a smoked ham.
You will most certainly have to add more coals during the cooking time to keep the heat at the proper temperature if you are using a charcoal grill. A chimney starter is best for this. A grill thermometer place in the grill (not a meat thermometer) is the best way to ensure that the temperature stays at the right place for food safety reasons.
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
- 3 tablespoons grated ginger root
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 pound fully cooked boneless ham
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup apricot preserves
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- Gather the ingredients.
- In large zipper lock food storage bag, combine 1 cup orange juice, 1/4 cup honey, pepper, ginger root, and oil and mix well. Score ham on top in a diamond pattern, making cuts about 1/4" deep.
- Place ham in bag along with marinade; seal and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 4-24 hours, turning occasionally.
- Prepare grill for indirect cooking; place drip pan in center and arrange coals around the edges of the drip pan. Heat coals until gray. Remove ham from marinade and place on grill over drip pan.
- Cover and grill for 1 hour 20 minutes, brushing with marinade several times during cooking. Turn ham over once halfway during cooking time. Discard any remaining marinade.
- In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup honey, apricot preserves, 2 tablespoons orange juice, Dijon mustard, and ground ginger. Bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Brush this sauce on ham. Cover and grill for 8 minutes longer. Brush sauce on ham again, cover and grill for 8 minutes longer until ham is glazed.
