Ingredients Serves 8
For the ham
14 pound fresh, uncured ham
brine for ham
glaze for ham
2 Hours for Prep, 4 Hours for Cook

Starting with a 14-pound fresh ham, we recommend removing the skin, but leaving as much of the fat intact as possible.


Brine in basic brine for about 24 hours. Remove, rinse and pat dry.

Hot Tip: You may add a mustard and rub combo. But for this long cook, it might be best to limit the rub. It will mostly cook to carbon crust.

Place the ham into the basket and the basket into The Big Easy® Oil-less Turkey Fryer. Estimate about 10-12 minutes per pound for planning purposes. Be sure to monitor the internal temperature with a reliable meat thermometer until the temperature reaches approximately 150 degrees Fahrenheit.


Add a honey, bourbon, and molasses glaze for the final 15-20 minutes of your cook.


Once reaching the internal temperature of 150 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the ham. Cover with foil and a towel. Place the covered ham in an insulated carrier or oven. This will allow to the ham to rest and finish cooking. Let the
internal temperature rise to an USDA recommended 165 degrees Fahrenheit, This should take about 30 minutes.
