Cooked a 2kg Sweetcure Gammon, I picked up at Xmas, but just got round to cooking it today on the Smokefire. Really pleased with the outcome, super tasty, did a glaze of Pineapple Juice, Marmalade, Brown Sugar and English Mustard.

Did it on Smokeboost for an hour and then it took a further 4 hours at 300F. Glazed it every 10F increments from 140F to a finished cooked IT of 170F, foiled & left to rest for 30 minutes and served with mashed potatoes and garden peas. Missed the parsley sauce to go with it, but couldn't get any fresh parsley at the supermarket today.

I'm from the UK so our definitions and terminology for things may be different for the same thing? A gammon is a raw cured pork leg usually smoked/unsmoked/sweetcure which you then can cook in numerous ways, you can also get gammon steaks that can be grilled or fried.

Your definition of ham is probably the same as gammon, but a ham over here is one that has been cured and cooked already (although a whole one can be reheated again) but usually buy it sliced and served in sandwiches or salads etc cold from the deli counter.

Thanks for the info, I was curious what that cut was too.

Nice looking Gammon, might have to change mine up from a stock pot full of Diet Coke on the hob.
I'm also from UK (Essex), nice to meet a fellow Weberite here in Blighty.

Hi, had mine since release, had its teething problems, but a great piece of kit that has widened my horizons to what I can cook outdoors now. Well worth cooking gammon on it, many different glazes to choose from. Recommend Sweetcure over normal as much less salty and a lovely sweetness to it, when cooked
