If you are planning a barbeque, then a ham on the grill is the best choice for the occasion. This delicious meat comes from the back leg of the pig. If you buy a ham from the supermarket, you will find that it comes cut into portions containing the shank, hip and butt. Usually, supermarket ham is already fully cooked. Cooking it on a barbeque grill, however, is about achieving a rich colour and flavour and will require a meat thermometer.
A simple barbecue ham recipe calls for sage and honey. For this recipe, you can buy dried sage leaves in a bottle in most supermarkets. You can also make your own by crushing the leaves yourself and mixing them with a little sugar. The mixture will add a nice flavor and makes a great barbecue sauce. A ham barbecue sandwich recipe like this has all the ingredients necessary to be a crowd pleaser.
The first step is to prepare the ham. Cut off the rind and skin from the ham. Then score the fat in 1cm strips and place the ham in a baking dish. Brush the ham with the glaze every half an hour or so until it is golden. The ham is ready when the glaze is caramelized and the rind is crispy. After this, it can be served. Once the ham is cooked, you can enjoy it with your family.
