Cooking for 4 people


  • 1 9 lb. fully cooked ham
  • enough yellow mustard to coat the outside of the ham
  • seasoning rub of your choice

Ham Glaze

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup honey (or agave)
  • ¼ cup yellow mustard

1 Food Prep

Rub the yellow mustard onto the ham to give your seasoning rub something to stick to, then add your favorite rub, coating liberally.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Charcoal Briquets (Classic Hickory)

Method: Charcoal Snake

Temp: 250–300°F (Low Heat)

3 The Cook

  • Place the briquets in a circular pattern, leaving room for a disposable water pan

  • Add the pan with water in the center of the grill to create moisture. 

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly. 

  • Place the ham on the grill grate directly over the water pan

  • In a grill-proof saucepan, combine and heat the ingredients for the ham glaze. 

  • About 30 minutes prior to the end of cooking time, begin glazing the ham every 10 minutes. 

  • The ham should take 20–30 minutes per pound to reach an internal temperature of 145°F on a digital meat thermometer, and a nice bark has formed on the outside.  

  • Remove from heat and let the ham rest for 10 minutes

  • Slice and enjoy!
