We double smoke our ham on the Big Green Egg using hickory chunks to add extra smoke flavor and the glaze gets extra sticky and delicious. We also love this Grilled Pineapple Glazed Ham to feed a crowd.

We enjoy grilled ham throughout the year, not just for the holidays. It’s great to cook over the weekend to have leftovers for sandwiches and easy dinners for the week.

How to Store and Reheat

Leftover ham can be wrapped in several layers of plastic wrap or store in a zip top bag in the refrigerator up to 4 days. For longer storage, use a vacuum sealer and refrigerate up to 7 days or freeze up to 3 months. The ham bone can be stored separately for beans or soup. 

Reheat sliced ham in a skillet coated with olive oil over medium heat, turning after 2 minutes, to warm both sides.

How Much Ham Per Person

With a bone-in ham, we figure about ¾ pound per person. An average half ham will serve 10 people.
