Sticky, Sweet and Scrumptious Cranberry & Orange Glazed Ham

This Christmas my new Ziggy Elite Twin BBQ from Barbeques Galore will be cooking all my favourites like my Sticky, Sweet and Scrumptious Cranberry & Orange Glazed Ham. 
I love making my glaze and scoring my ham the day before to save time on Christmas Day. Then my Ziggy will work it’s magic a couple hours before my guests arrive! Check out my recipe below 
4-4.8kg Smoked Ham
Cranberry & Orange Glaze
1.5 cups brown sugar
1.5 cups orange juice 
1 jar @oceansprayanz whole cranberry sauce (275g)
1 tbsp Dijon mustard 
2 tbsp honey
2 cinnamon sticks 
1. To prepare the cranberry & orange glaze - Combine the brown sugar, orange juice, jar of whole cranberry sauce, Dijon mustard, cinnamon sticks and honey in a saucepan. Simmer the sauce for 15 minutes, stirring frequently. The sugar will dissolve and the sauce will thicken slightly. Leave the sauce to cool down and then refrigerate it for at least an hour or preferably overnight. 
2. To score the ham - Use a sharp knife to cut through the rind around the handle. I like to cut triangles. Then run your fingers back and forth to separate the skin from the fat. Remove the skin and lightly score the fat, 1 inch diamond patterns all over.  The diamond patterns will open up and get crispy when the ham is cooking.
3. Place the scored ham onto a rack of a roasting tray. Add some water to the tray and the brush the ham with one third of the glaze.
4. Prepare a BBQ for indirect cooking and preheat to 180c (350f). When using a Ziggy Elite Twin BBQ only use one out of the two burners turned to low/med heat. Place the roasting tray on the unlit side, lid down. 
5. Cook the ham for 1 to 1.5 hours, basting it with glaze every 30 minutes. Remove the ham from the BBQ and allow it to rest for at least 15 minutes before serving. Add a small bowl of additional glaze for serving.
