Steven's grilled matzoh recipe for Passover got me thinking about the upcoming Easter holiday. Is anyone grilling or smoking a ham or perhaps some lamb? Because of schedule conflicts we had dinner yesterday (a week early), but I'm thinking about firing up the WSM and disposing of a large pork butt that's been languishing in the bottom of the freezer for far too long.

How about you?

Got a few pork leg roasts I'll be cooking low 'n slow. Not quite fresh ham as they aren't cured, but I'm looking forward to them.

Just a note: if any of you are cooking any kind of pork for Easter, please post pics in the monthly Online Block Party as well. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Got a great deal on a 4# boneless New Zealand Fresh leg of lamb.

My co-worker got a coupon for $15 at a butcher shop that carries them and she gave it to me.

Only cost me $22 for the fresh 4# leg roll (never frozen)

Wow, that's a great deal alright and a very nice gesture on her part! Are you going to save a little bit for her or does she not eat lamb?

Got a deal on turkey breast for .99 lbs. Think I'll do beer can turkey breast. I'll drink the beer and watch the turkey breast smoke with some apple wood chunks.

Have a great Easter week end all.

That sounds like an excellent technique! :lol:

Jimmy, is the ham already cooked and just in need of reheating with some smoke and maybe a glaze?

I put the pork shoulder on yesterday at 4:15pm and when I checked it this morning at 6:15 all the temperature checks (Yardbirds style: over, under, sideways, and down) registered over 200 and the thermo probe slid in with hardly any resistance, so it's wrapped in foil and towels and sitting in a cooler.

That is exactly what I'm doing today. I ran across a recipe for a glaze that includes cumin, chili powder, paprika, cinnamon, ground cloves, sugar substitute (I'll use Splenda) and sugar free apricot jam. It looked interesting and is different than what I've done in the past, so I'm looking forward to see how it turns out.
