Smoky Honey Glazed Spiral Ham

Honey glazed spiral ham


This recipe takes inspiration from classic smoked spiral ham but adapts it specifically for the Engel Master by Engel Fires. We’ll use a combination of charcoal and maple wood for a touch of smoky sweetness, then glaze the ham with a unique blend of sweet and savory flavors.


Prep time: 2o mins
Cooking time:
100 mins



1 (6- to 7-pound) fully cooked, spiral-sliced ham
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for a kick)



  1. Prepare the Engel Master: Light the lump charcoal in a chimney starter and let it burn until mostly white ash forms (about 15-20 minutes).

  2. Smoking Setup:  Arrange the hot coals on one side of the Engel Master grate. Place a disposable aluminum drip pan filled with water on the opposite side. Scatter the maple wood chunks on top of the hot coals for smoking.

  3. Glaze Prep:  While the smoker gets going, whisk together the maple syrup, Dijon mustard, orange juice, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, and cayenne pepper (if using) in a bowl.

  4. Prepare the Ham:  Carefully place the spiral-sliced ham in a shallow baking dish or pan that fits comfortably on the Engel Master grate.

  5. Smoking and Glazing:  Place the baking dish with the ham on the Engel Master grate opposite the hot coals. Close the doors and smoke the ham 80 minutes.

  6. Basting and Finishing: Brush the ham generously with the glaze after smoking. Continue cooking for another 15-20 minutes, basting with the glaze every 5-7 minutes until the glaze is bubbly and caramelized around the edges of the ham slices.

  • Use a meat thermometer to monitor the internal temperature of the ham. Aim for an internal temperature of 140°F (60°C) since the ham is already pre-cooked.
  • Use the Engel Master temperature gauge and maintain a grill temperature between 225°F and 275°F for gentle smoking and reheating.
  • Be mindful of flare-ups, especially during the initial grilling phase. If flare-ups occur, move the pan slightly away from the heat source.

Enjoy! This recipe infuses your ham with a touch of smoky sweetness and a unique glaze that creates a show-stopping centerpiece for any gathering.
