Topic Title: Dad's Ham

So I need some help. My Father recently passed and he always made the Easter ham on his Holland Grill.Along with inheriting this awesome grill comes the Easter ham responsibilities. Any help with techniques and or information on how to best carry on this tradition would be fantastic!
Thank you in advance for your help.


The things we forget to ask our Dads....My ham is 10#. Dad always insisted on "slow cooking", how long should I plan to cook and what temperature should I set it at? I really appreciate your help.
Thank you!

You have two settings on a Holland - ON or OFF. So don't worry about what temperature to set it on. It will cook at about 400F to 430F and that's it.

I would use an internal temp probe and cook until it reaches about 140 to 145F.


We have half ham and are wondering if you put the cut side directly on the gill or in a pan?


You can control the temperature by closing the drain value and adding 1.5 gallon of water. This how your Dad slow cooked his ham. The water will bring the temp down to 250-275. Half hams are best, you can cook two, allow 2.5 hours, brush on a glaze and let heat for .5 hr.


Thanks Mike! My ham came out great. I will try your suggestions next time. I love this grill - I will try all kinds of things i would never have tried to BBQ. Take care!
