  • 6kg or 12-pound cooked leg of ham
  • 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
  • 150g of firmly packed light brown sugar and another 55g for the glaze
  • 1 medium pineapple halved and sliced thickly
  • 125ml pineapple juice
  • 125ml sweet sherry
  • 2 cloves garlic (halved lengthways)
  • A quarter spoon ground clove
  • Preparing the Ham

Use a decorative pattern to cut through the rind of ham about 4 inches from the shank end of the leg. You can remove the rind by running your thumb around the edge of the rind just under the skin. Pull the rind from the shank end to the widest edge of the ham. The rind can be discarded.

With a sharp knife, make shallow cuts in one direction diagonally across the fat at equal intervals and then shallow-cut in the opposite direction to get a diamond pattern.

It is important to remember that you should not cut through the top fat as it may spread apart when being cooked.

Cooking the Ham

With a Dizzy Lamb barbecue, you are going to do magic with the ham. Place the ham in a disposable baking dish and rub with combined mustard and sugar. Simply follow the instructions for the barbecue and cook the ham using indirect heat for an hour.

Prepare the Glaze

While the ham is getting cooked, prepare the glaze. In a small saucepan, stir the pineapple juice, sherry, 55g sugar, garlic and clove over heat until the sugar dissolves. Reduce the heat and allow to simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes or until the glaze is reduced by half.

Cook Some More

Brush the glaze all over the cooked ham. Now cover and cook the ham for a further 45 minutes, again using indirect heat. You will need to brush the glaze several times. Once done, remove the ham from heat and keep it covered with foil for about 15 minutes.

Get the Pineapple Ready

Now, it’s time to cook the pineapple on a heated barbeque. Brush with remaining glaze while the pineapple is cooking.

Ready to Serve

Sit back, relax and get ready to enjoy a delicious meal of sliced ham with pineapple.
