Grilled Spiced Ham with Citrus Glaze

Author Leigh Anne Wilkes

Ingredients

  • 6 to 7 pound fully-cooked bone-in ham trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup citrus flavored marmalade lemon, orange,etc.
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar packed

Instructions

  • Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium-hot (375 to 425 degrees F).
  • Prepare the grill for indirect cooking: For a gas grill, turn off the center burner; for a charcoal grill, bank the coals on either side; place a drip pan under the grate between the heat sources.
  • Score a diamond pattern into the ham, about 1/8-inch deep into any fat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the coriander, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and cloves. Rub the spice mixture over all sides of the ham.
  • Place the ham, flat side down, in the center of the grill over the drip pan. Cover and cook, adding briquettes to a charcoal grill as necessary to maintain the heat, until the internal temperature of the ham reaches 140 degrees F, 1 1/2 to 2 hours or 15 to 18 minutes per pound.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the marmalade, orange juice, and sugar.
  • Brush the marmalade mixture over the ham.
  • Cover and grill 5 minutes, until the glaze is lightly caramelized.
  • Remove the ham from the grill, transfer to a cutting board, and let rest 15 to 30 minutes.

Roasting instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven.
  • Score a diamond pattern into the ham, about 1/8-inch deep into any fat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the coriander, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and cloves.
  • Rub the spice mixture over all sides of the ham.
  • Place the ham, flat side down, in a large shallow roasting pan and cook until the internal temperature of the ham reaches 140 degrees F, 1 1/2 to 2 hours or 15 to 18 minutes per pound.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the marmalade, orange juice, and sugar.
  • Brush the marmalade mixture over the ham.
  • Return to the oven and roast 5 minutes, until the glaze is lightly caramelized. Remove the ham from the oven, transfer to a cutting board, and let rest 15 to 30 minutes.
