Rotisserie Pineapple Bourbon Glazed Boneless Ham

I recently bought a new gas grill, retiring (at least for now) one I’d had for 19 years and had used almost 4,000 times. This time, I got a grill with a rotisserie. I didn’t think I’d need one, but I’d been looking forward to trying some new things, like this rotisserie pineapple bourbon glazed boneless ham.

I chose a boneless ham because I wanted to slice the end result thin and use it for sandwiches. Normally I’d score my ham, but I’ve found that scoring makes it very difficult to slice so thin. I still got that wonderful pineapple flavor, with just a hint of bourbon. It was delicious!
Rotisserie Pineapple Bourbon Glazed Boneless Ham

You can use this same approach on any pre-cooked ham, smoked or not. I found this rotisserie pineapple bourbon glazed boneless ham to be absolutely delicious. I could not sampling the slices as I cut them. The thin slices were for sandwiches. The thicker ones will find their way into omelets and yes, even homemade Spam!

Cherry Sauce Glazed Ham

I used to think it would be wrong to just have ham for dinner. This cherry sauce glazed ham made me think it would actually be ok to just sit down to a plate of ham and get at it. I didn’t, but I could have. The tartness of the cherries and the sweetness of the honey, along with a few spices, make each bite fantastic. Even a cheap ham becomes something decadent after being glazed with the sauce.
Cherry Sauce Glazed HamI think you could try something other than cherry preserves to make the sauce for this cherry sauce glazed ham, if you wanted to. You’d want something that isn’t so sweet, though, such as cranberry or pomegranates.

You’ll want to make my bacon-glazed spiral ham¬†and Sriracha honey ham too! My pepper onion beer sauce makes for a great topping for ham!

Ingredients

  • 1 cooked smoked, spiral sliced ham
  • 1 jar 12 ounce cherry preserves (I used Smucker's tart cherry preserves)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 225 F.
  • Remove heat from packaging, discarding the glaze, and place face down in a roasting pan (you'll want to use one that's at least 1" deep because there'll be accumulating juices).
  • Cover pan with foil and bake for 1 1/2 hours or until internal temperature reaches 135 F.
  • Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a simmer.
  • Brush glaze over the ham and let cook another 5 minutes.
  • Remove ham from oven and let rest at least 15 minutes before slicing.
  • Serve remaining warm glaze on the side for drizzling of the sliced ham.
