  • 1 piece Whole farmers ham Cooked and brined

For the dry rub

  • 1 part paprika powder
  • 1 part onion powder
  • 1 part white sugar
  • 1/4 part garlic powder
  • 1/4 part ground black pepper

For the glaze

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup apple syrup
  • 100 grams butter
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon


  • Mix the dry rub and sprinkle it with an even layer on the ham.
  • Fire up your smoker with a temperature of 160°C/320°F. Place the rubbed ham on the grates and close the lid.
  • Add the ingredients for the glaze in a pan and let this simmer, while stirring, till the sugar is dissolved and you see a syrupy bubble appear.
  • When the rub on the ham dried up and stuck to the surface of the meat, you can brush on the glaze. Make sure you brush on a thick layer.
  • When the ham reaches a core temperature of 65°C/149°F, you take it out of the smoker.
  • Slice it into thin, or thick, slices and make some sandwiches with it.
