Equipment & Fuel


  1. Get your grill fired up to 275-300º.
  2. Take your ham out of the pack and season with Heath Riles BBQ Competition BBQ Rub.
  3. Place your ham on the grill. We cooked on our Goldens’ Cast Iron with a deflector plate in.
  4. After an hour, spritz your ham with apple juice, or whatever liquid you prefer. Spritz every 30 minutes after that first hour.
  5. When your ham is getting close to 130º, make your cranberry glaze on your stovetop. You want your glaze to cook down and those cranberries to pop.
  6. After 2 hours, our ham was hitting 130º, so it was time to glaze.
  7. Glaze your ham with your cranberry glaze and season with Heath Riles BBQ Honey Rub.
  8. Return it to your grill and let it caramelize for about 15-20 minutes.
  9. Once your ham is hitting 140º, pull it off your grill.
  10. Allow it to cool and then serve.
