1 - 7lb Spiral Ham
2 Tbl Yellow Mustard
1 Tsp Spice Rub (your favorite)
1/2 C Orange Juice
1/2 C Maple Syrup
1 C Light Brown Sugar
1/2 c Dijon Mustard
1 C Bourbon Whiskey
1 Tsp Cinnamon


Rub yellow mustard all over the ham. Season the ham with the spice rub. Place ham in a roasting pan and place the ham in a smoker. The smoker should be set on 225 degrees. While ham is smoking, add orange juice, maple syrup, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, bourbon whiskey and cinnamon in a sauce pot. Turn the sauce pot on medium heat and let the marinade reduce by half. Remove from heat and set aside. This process should take about 30 minutes. After the ham has been smoking for about an hour and half. Begin to start basting the ham with the marinade. Continue to baste the ham for an hour. Once ham is done cooking approximately 2.5 hours or until internal temperature of the ham is between 130-140 degrees, remove from the smoker and baste it one more time. Allow ham to rest for about 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
