Knob Creek Smoked Maple Glazed Ham Created by Michael SymonRecipe Serves 8-10

10-12 pound, Bone-In, Fully Cooked Ham
1 C Water
2 C Knob Creek Smoked Maple Bourbon
¼ C Dijon Mustard
1 ½ C Brown Sugar
½ C Honey
½ C Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Cinnamon Stick
Juice of 1 Orange
½ tsp. Salt

1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
2. Place ham in a roasting pan, adding 1 cup of water to the bottom of the pan. Cover 
with foil and place in the oven to warm through, about 2 hours. (begin making glaze)
3. After about 2 hours, your ham should be warmed through. Remove it from the oven 
and remove the foil.
4. Turn the oven up to 375 degrees.
5. Pour the glaze over the ham and place ham back in the oven, uncovered, for another 
10-15 minutes, until the glaze becomes sticky on the outside of the ham and starts to caramelize.
6. Remove from the oven, slice and enjoy.

1. Heat a large heavy bottomed saucepot over medium heat and combine the Knob 
Creek Smoked Maple, mustard, brown sugar, honey, cider vinegar and cinnamon 
2. As the mixture comes to a gentle boil, whisk to dissolve the sugars.
3. Lower the heat to medium low, and continue to cook and reduce liquid. Whisk the mixture occasionally until it begins to thicken, about 30 minutes.
4. After about 20 minutes, the mixture will begin to look like a glaze and the bubbles 
will slow down and appear smaller.
5. Remove from heat and finish the glaze with the juice of 1 orange and ½ tsp. salt.
6. Remove the cinnamon stick then set aside.
