Today is a meat eaters dream come true. Esp when you have a 15lb ossian ham waiting to be demolished at the mamas. I really wish I could share some of this with you guys. This ham is the sebenza of food. Tender, chunky, seasoned in brown sugar perfection, mm mm mmmm. I hope everyone's days is half as joyous as mine will be.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!
 
Make sure it's a real ham ! I'm the guy who does all the carving so when visiting I was asked to 'carve' the ham. It looked a bit different and then I found that it was a spiral cut ham ,the first I had ever seen !! What an insult.
 
I never heard of Ossian ham so I did a search. Sounds good. I used to like Honey Baked ham, but the local franchise has been hit or miss.

Happy TG.
 
I love ham but I haven't found one yet that didn't make me drink a gal of water later.

Turkey and the traditional BBQ ribs for Turkey day for me!
 
2 hickory smoked turkeys for us this year :D came out perfect!!!

I love a good honey baked ham, but we usually save that one for christmas along side a turkey.
 
As always, mom outdid herself. Hours of careful prep, all for 20 minutes of primal glory/gluten! She fed 10 but had enough for about 100. I got all the left-overs, what a pity :D

food porn :p

Im with ya man, not at all for the thin sliced spiral style. This was a bone in monster. The meat lady who checked us out even commented on how you cant find a better ham :thumbup:

Try marinating that bad boy with some brown sugar on that bad come xmas time. It doesnt suck.

CHEERDS!
 
I NEED a picture. Love smoking a ham. 6-10 hours depending on size. Hickory. Cut thru the rind on 1" centers, insert whole cloves at the intersections. Glaze with brown sugar, honey, ginger, ground cloves with a little bit of chili powder. Everybody always fights over the "ham candy" - the end of the shank thats been in the smoke and glaze. I have a 15 lber in the refridge ready for action. It always seems like they taste better when they've been smoked around the xmas holiday. I am going to have to check out ossian hams. I know there is a huge difference in quality and taste when you start getting into the hard cured hams - we just don't see them out here.
