If you have not had a ham cooked on a rotisserie you have missed out! Years ago I received the Showtime Rotisserie: Set it and forget it! I love this rotisserie! This ham is easy to make and loaded with flavor!
1 – 8 to 10# smoked ham, shank cut, bone in
1 cup of real maple syrup
Center the ham on the rotisserie rods and load into the rotisserie. Allow 15 minutes per pound in cooking. Make sure that the ham does not hit the heating element.
I am making a 10 pounder so I will be cooking this for 2 1/2 hours.
Check the temperature to make sure that it is done – it should be at 155 degrees when you turn this off. One half hour before turning off the heat, brush with the maple syrup. Do this a few times before shutting down the heat. Now here is the really important part: Once the ham has reached 155 degrees, turn the heat off and continue to rotate the ham for about 15 minutes. This allows the juices to remain in the meat. Leave the door shut so that the heat stays in.
When done, remove from the oven to your cutting board. Let it sit 5 minutes before carving.
I will be serving this with acorn squash and cheesy au gratin potatoes. Look for those recipes on my blog too!
Serve this dinner up with a lovely Mourvedre or Grenache. Chill the wine for 20 minutes before serving!
Happy holidays to all, and to all a good night!
