3 kg cured ham wit fat and rind attached

100g mustard

100g brown sugar

In the kitchen:

At the barbecue:

  1. Prepare the barbecue for indirect heat, approx. 120°C to 130°C.
  2. Place a drip pan between the briquettes to catch the meat juices.
  3. Place the tied ham in your barbecue indirect over a drip pan and cook for approx. 3 hours.
  4. Insert a thermometer in the thickest part of the ham. The ham is ready when the core temperature reaches 75°C.
  5. When the ham is done, wrap it in aluminium foil and allow to rest.
  6. Prepare the barbecue for indirect heat, approx. 250°C to 280°C.
  7. Combine the mustard, egg yolk, and brown sugar (the glaze will benefit from the addition of a little freshly ground allspice and cloves).

  9. Coat the ham with the glaze (the mustard mixture).
  10. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the ham, covering it in a thin layer. Dust off any excess breadcrumbs.
  11. Put the ham back in the barbecue until golden – approx. 15 minutes.
  12. Mix 100g of mustard with 100g of brown sugar to serve with the ham, for the perfect sauce.
