How to Setup the Big Green Egg for this Double Smoked Pineapple Ham?
To setup the Big Green Egg or Kamado Joe start out by getting the lump charcoal going. Once it is started add some apple wood chunks to help enhance the flavor of the ham. Once complete, you can then add your plate setter / conv”egg”tor with the feet facing upward for an indirect cook. This is then followed by the grate.
You’ll want to get the BGE dialed into somewhere between 225 degrees to 250 degrees.
Double Smoked Pineapple Ham Ingredients
- 1 Cup – Light Brown Sugar
- 20 Ounces – Crushed Pineapple
- Fresh Pineapple Topping (optional)
How to Prepare the Double Smoked Pineapple Ham?
Start out by placing a cup of light brown sugar in the bottom of a disposable tinfoil pan. Spread the brown sugar out so that it has an even coat across the bottom of the tinfoil pan.
Next, place the ham in the pan.
Follow the ham up with the crushed pineapple in which you’ll want to spread it evenly around the ham.
Once complete, add a decent amount of honey on the top.
If you like smoked pineapple, I also recommend pinning a couple fresh slices on top of the ham with tooth picks. These are deliciously served with the ham at the end of the cook.
How to Cook the Double Smoked Pineapple Ham?
By now your BGE should be setup for an indirect cook and be dialed in around 225 – 250 degrees. To cook this double smoked ham on the Big Green Egg simply place it on the grate, add your temperature probes and let the BGE do its thing.
Your ham is already cooked so there isn’t necessarily an internal temperature that it needs to reach. The ham should take about 3 hours to cook in which you will pull it right at 155 degrees, which is the optimal temperature in my opinion.
While this ham is delicious as is, you can always get even more flavor out of it by adding a glaze to the top of it! Enjoy!

What cut of ham did you use? It doesn't look like a spiral, but I want to get the right one. Thanks!

I've used spiral ham as well and it turns out just as great. In fact, it is easier to carve with spiral. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
