smokin a deer ham
 
I am smoking a deer ham today and was just curious as to if any of yall other hunters/smokers have done this?

I have it split open so it looks more like a slab of meat than a half ham. Should cut my cooking time down and allow more of the rub to come in direct contact with the meat. Hope it turns out well cuz I got company coming over to eat it. And on that note of having it split means I took the bone out.

yeah joel I am going to have to try the ham again. I need to work on my rub and get my smoking time in check. It was edible after I did some doctoring but it was not great by any means. I wrapped it in bacon and I think doing that allowed to much rub to get into the meat. It was over fruity tasting. Did not taste a bit like venison. And had zero smoke flavor. It looked good though. I took it off, removed the bacon and majority of rub, added a brown sugar and maple syrup topping and smoked it upwrapped for about another hour. That made it better.
