Hamming Up New Year's Eve

January 12, 2016

We at Leisure Depot hope that y'all had the best Holiday Season, and that you cooked the best holiday feasts for your family and guests. I think and hope I did. Based on the eater reviews I accomplished that.

As you may know, I am a native New Englander, but married a Georgia Peach. 10 years ago I was introduced to the Southern New Years Dinner that consists of ham, hoppin' johns, and collard greens. So I went and bought a ham, a 10 pounder to be exact. We invited our neighbors to join us for dinner New Years Day.

I have never cooked a ham on the Egg, but my teammate Sandy has been bugging me for months to try one. She said hers is the ultimate so I asked her for her recipe. Drizzle some pineapple juice over the ham, coat with brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt and crushed red pepper flakes to add some heat to the sweetness. She said to cook at about 225 degrees for 2-4 hours.

Got my XL Big Green Egg fired up to 250, put on Conveggtor and my ham and let the Egg do it’s magic. I figured about four hours or so, but mine took more like 6. Our dinner guests were not bothered by the slight delay with the start of dinner and everyone thought the meat was juicy, tender, and more importantly, delicious. Another New Year’s celebration with family and friends in the books, and another great experience with my Big Green Egg!

Have a great 2016 everyone! We look forward to serving you this year at Leisure Depot!
