Test Your Hand At Smoke Cooking With Succulent Slow-Roasted Ham From New YorkTimes Best-Selling Author (NAPS)--According to the 23rd annual Weber Grill- Watch Survey, nearly half of Americans (44 percent) are interested in cooking on an outdoor smoker. With the colder temperatures moving in, now is the perfect time to give smoking a try no matter what type of grill you have. "Smoke cooking can be intimidating to many people-- even experienced grillers,  says Jamie Purviance, whose "Weber's Smoke --A Guide to Smoke Cooking for Everyone andAny Grill  made the New York Times Best-Sellers list. "My goal is to take the mys- tery out of smoke cooking and walk people through every step---from setting up what- ever type of grill they are using to adding the best kind of smoke at the right times." Purviance's Top 10 Smok- ing Tips include cautioning against adding too much wood, chunk after chunk, to the point where the food tastes bitter. "In general, you should smoke food for no longer than half its cooking time," says Purviance. Try your hand at smoking with this great seasonal recipe, perfect for beginners to expe- rienced smoking enthusiasts. Slow-Roasted Ham With  Cider Glaze Ideal grill: charcoal Smoke intensity: strong Prep time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 17, to 2 hours Special equipment: large disposable foil pan, Slow-Roasted Ham with Sweet-mtd-Sour Cider Glaze. instant-read thermometer Serves: 10 to 12 1 whole, fully cooked, bone.in smoked ham, 8 to 10 pounds (not spiral cut) 4 large handfuls apple wood chips, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes Glaze: cup cider vinegar cup ketchup cup fresh lime juice 3 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard teaspoon ground black pepper 1.Allow the ham to stand at room tempera- ture for about 30 minutes before cooking. 2. Prepare the grill for indirect cooking with low heat (250 to 350 F). For a charcoal grill, light about 25 briquettes and divide them into 2 equal piles on opposite sides of the charcoal grate. 3. Brush the cooking grate clean. Drain and add 2 handfuis of the wood chips to the charcoal and put the lid on the grilL Put the ham, fiat-side down, in a large disposable foil pan and add 1 cup of water. When the wood begins to smoke, place the pan on the cooking grate over INDIRECT LOW HEAT. Cook the ham, with the lid closed as much as possi- ble, until an instant-read thermometc  into the thickest part of the ham (not touching the bone) reaches 135 F, 1 to 2 hours (about 10 minutes per pound). Replenish the charcoal as needed to maintain a steady tem- perature, adding three to five Ht briquettes to each pile every 45 minutes, along with the remaining di'ained wood chips. Mean- while, make the glaze. 4. In a small saucepan combine the glaze ingre- dients and simmer over medium heat until heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove fom the heat. 5. Glaze the ham during the last 30 minutes of cook- ing timc. If me ham begins to look too dark, cover it with foil and stop glazing. Carefully transfer the ham fom the foil pan to a cut- ting boarcL Tent with foil and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes. Cut the ham into slices and serve warm.
