Grilled Ham with Lemon-Orange Glaze
Rubbed with a sweet and savory blend of seasonings and topped with a lemon-orange glaze, this zestful recipe is the perfect centerpiece for any celebration. The grill does the work while you enjoy the fresh air in the company of friends and family.
1 (6 to 7-pound) bone-in smoked ham
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 cup lemon marmalade
2 tablespoon orange juice
- Prepare gas or charcoal grill to medium-hot (375°F to 425°F / 190°C to 220°C) for indirect cooking. Place drop pan in center, not over heat source (for gas grill, turn off center burner; for charcoal grill, bank coals on either side).
- Score top and sides of ham with a knife in a crisscross pattern; mix all remaining ingredients except the glaze ingredients and rub into surface of ham. Place ham, score side up, in center of grill over drop pan. Cover and grill for 1 to 1 1/2 hours (adding 6 to 8 briquettes to charcoal grill if necessary to maintain heat), until internal temperature of ham (measured with a meat thermometer) reads 140°F (60°C).
- Combine marmalade and orange juice in a small bowl; brush over ham and grill 5 minutes more. Remove ham from grill and let stand 15 minutes.
Makes 8 servings with leftovers.
