Slather yellow mustard on ham and pork before smoking in order to keep it moist if not injecting. It also gives the rub something to cling to and at the end you don't even taste the mustard.
The bourbon mix, instead of rum as Jeff @ smoking-meat used, was:
2/3 cup bourbon
1/3 cup molasses
1 stick butter
Pour the bourbon into a small sauce pan over low heat. Add the butter and let it melt while you stir it around. Add in the molasses while you continue to stir. Once everything is melted and dissolved and warm, remove from the heat. Do not let the sauce boil or you will end up making candy.
"What is the best ham to purchase?Any boneless or bone-in ham will do as long as it is a real ham and not a ham and water product. If it says 23% water on the package, you don't want it. I prefer the bone-in but it's all personal preference as long as it's a good quality ham.
What about spiral sliced hams? I like using the spiral sliced hams but since I wanted to inject this one, I opted for one that was not already sliced. you could, however, drizzle the sauce down in between the slices as an alternative to injecting it and that would be very good as well. While you are at it, sprinkle some rub in between the slices as well.
What if the ham is already smoked? What they do at the factory and what you can do at home in your own smoker is two different things. Don't even concern yourself about what they did, simply re-smoke it yourself and you will taste the amazing difference."
