  • 3 lb. spiral-sliced ham
  • Dry rub
  • Raspberry chipotle BBQ sauce
  • Hickory chips
  • Worcestershire spray


  • Preheat your grill to medium heat (300-350 degrees) and turn off one side so you will be cooking with indirect heat. Add wet hickory chips over the fire and oil the grill.
  • A cooking spray is easiest for this. (Note: you can add hickory directly to the grill or you can use foil smoke packets. Two handfuls wet chips and one dry, fold foil into a packet, poke holes in it with a fork and you're good to go.)
  • I use a spray bottle when cooking on the grill filled with a Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke mix that keeps things moist and adds tons of flavors. (Mix is 3 parts Worcestershire with 1 part liquid smoke.)
  • Spray the ham with the Worcestershire spray, then sprinkle dry rub on the ham and rub it into the meat.
  • Place the ribs on the cool side of the grill, for 3-4 hours or until tender.
  • Keep the heat around 350 degrees and add hickory chips as needed.
  • To keep the ham moist every time you add hickory, spray them with the Worcestershire spray.
