Bone-In Ham on the Barbecue With Honey-Butter Glaze

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Triple BQ

My husband wanted a Bone in Ham the other day and with my kitchen was between 80 - 90 degrees, I did not want to heat the oven. I could find lots of recipes for steaks but very few for Whole or Bone in Ham. I combined what I found and came up with this.

I was looking for a Bone in Ham recipe for the BBQ as my full size oven has officially gone to the next world. This recipe worked very well. The honey-butter glaze is quite nice, however next time I would only make half the recipe as there was a lot of glaze left over. My roast took about 2 hours to reach 145 F over indirect heat. (I should say that the outdoor temperature was hoving around 0 degrees Celcius when I cooked this so my gas grill had to "try a little harder" due to the cold outside temperature. This roast might not have taken quite that long to cook in fairer weather conditions.) I turned the 2 outside burners on and left the middle one off. I also cradled the roast in a V shaped BBQ roasting rack instead of placing the roast directly on the grill itself. I will make this again. Thanks BBQ Queen.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak your smoking chips in water. Put in a pan, either the one that came with your BBQ or a metal pie tin, place on the hot side of the grill. To create a hot side and a cold side only heat 1-2 burners or put all your charcoal on one side of the grill. Preheat your grill to 325°F.
  2. Place bone-in ham cut side down on the cold side of the grill. Insert a meat thermometer not touching the bone. Cook until your meat thermometer reads 145°F (it’s ok to go over little).
  3. In the meantime prepare your glaze.
  4. In a glass measuring cup or microwave proof dish mix Honey, Corn Syrup, and Butter. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Mix well. Microwave again before using if necessary.
  5. When your meat thermometer reads 145°F start glazing your ham. Continue cooking for 10 minutes glazing every 2-3 minutes, you might have left over glaze.
  6. Remove ham from BBQ and let rest for 10 minutes before carving. After carving drizzle any extra glaze over slices for added flavors.
