Easter Ham: Grilled and Glazed

Easter Ham: Grilled and Glazed 12

This is the traditional Easter ham that I have been grilling for my family for over 20 years.  My only complaint about this grilled ham is no leftovers. If there is any left after the meal, it makes it’s way home with everyone else instead of finding it’s way in between a couple slices of rye the next day at my house. I hope this ham is as big a hit for your family as it has been for ours!

Easter Ham Ingredients:

1 can crushed pineapple (20 oz)
1 cup honey
½ bottle White Zinfandel wine
zest and juice of one orange
1 cup brown sugar (remove this and add more honey to make paleo friendly)
1 pineapple, cored and sliced (Optional)
1 bone-in ham

The Easter Ham Ingredients

For you paleo folks, increase the honey and eliminate the brown sugar to make it paleo friendly.

To make the ham glaze, combine all the ingredients (except for ham and the pineapple) in a bowl and mix well:

Set up the Big Green Egg (BGE) for indirect grilling by putting the place setter over the charcoal:

Slide the Place Setter over the Coals of the Big Green Egg

You can use your favorite wood chips or chunks in the Big Green Egg for smoke.  If you’re using another type of grill, put the fire one side and the ham on the other to create the indirect grilling affect.

Your ham is actually already cooked, so you’re really just warming it.  Therefore, you only want the BGE temp at 200-225° F.  Since this holiday ham is getting a glaze, I recommend using a drip pan under the ham as well. Also, if you don’t go with indirect grilling, the sugar glaze will blacken really bad.

Drip Pan on the Place Setter for the Big Green Egg

This keeps drippings from going in the BGE and making a big mess.  You can also use the drippings on the side for anyone who wants to put them on the easter ham for added flavor and juice!

What’s better than Ham and Pineapple?

Optional:  You can also cut up pineapple rings and put them on the ham.

Cut the pineapple and remove the core:

Take toothpicks and attach the rings to the Easter ham for the last 30-45 minutes so that the pineapple doesn’t turn too dark and look unappetizing.  YUM!

On the Big Green Egg

Grill your delicious ham for about 3 hours, glazing every 30 minutes.

Here is the grilled ham ready to come off the BGE to carve:
