- approximately 30 cloves

- 4 oranges (3 for garnish)

- smoked ham (or smoke it yourself at 250F/121C until 150F/65C internal temp)


- 3/4 cup maple syrup

- 1/4 cup white sugar

- 1/4 cup brown sugar

- 3 tbsp Dijon mustard

- 3/4 tsp fresh ground cinnamon

- 1 tsp all spice

- kale (garnish)

- juice of 1 orange


- remove rind (run a petty knife around the bone handle, and down each side of the ham, then peel the skin back and remove

- lightly cut diamonds across the fat cap now exposed under the skin

- insert a close at each cross section of the slices (like in the picture below)

- mix glaze ingredients in a small sauce pan over low heat until the sugar has melted

- place the ham on a roasting rack which is placed on a roasting pan (flattest side up so its level)

- squeeze the juice of one orange over the ham and place the orange skin in the roasting pan

- place in BBQ, oven or smoker at 320F/160C for 2 hours whilst basting every 20 mins with the glaze solution. * pro tip * mop up glaze that drips into the roasting pan and brush back over ham

- if sections start to caramelize or burn faster than other sections, place a small piece of alfoil over the effected area

- once the skin on the bone handle is very dark brown, and the glaze on the remainder is a rich dark brown you are ready to remove from your cooker

- rest for 20 mins

- during this time baste every 2-3 mins to obtain a glossy and thick glaze over your ham

- then glam up your ham with kale, sliced oranges and whatever tickles your fancy.

Maple syrup and orange glazed Christmas ham that is cheap and will impress your family
