Orange-Maple Glazed Ham


Let’s be honest… ham isn’t exactly a tradition in my family. We aren’t Kosher, but it’s not often you have ham on Hanukkah. 🙂 

However, this is a delicious ham recipe, that we use, and I highly recommend serving it with scalloped potatoes and a steamed vegetable. Enjoy!

Glaze Ingredients:

  • Juice and pulp from two fresh oranges (we used oranges from Crockett Farms)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup apricot jam
  • a few dashes of hot sauce


  • Combine glaze ingredients in a small saucepan, and cook on medium heat until boiling. Stir frequently and continue cooking until liquid reduces by 1/3. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, start up your grill to 350* and prepare your ham. We used a spiral cut, pre-cooked ham. 
  • Place ham in a deep grill-safe dish, cut side down. Sprinkle liberally with the rub of your choice. We used Whiskey Bent BBQ’s Old Fashioned
  • Put the ham in your heated grill and cook for 15 minutes. 
  • Turn the ham on its side after 15 minutes of cooking (so spirals are loose) and begin basting with prepared glaze. Sprinkle again with a mix of rub and turbinado sugar. Repeat every 15-20 minutes, until there is a good crust on your ham and it is heated through. About 75 minutes total cooking time.
