Wood Fired Ham

A picture of a wood fired ham chop on a chopping board, taken from above, with a knife resting to the right of the ham, also on the chopping board. Two slices of ham have been cut and rest in front of the ham, also on the chopping board.

There’s nothing better than a joint of meat cooked in a wood fired oven and our recipe is certainly no exception. The sticky glaze that’s brushed on the joint gives it a lovely sweet flavour, which compliments the rich smokiness of the meat.

You’ll Need

  • Joint of ham, around 500g
  • 5tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1tbsp honey
  • 1tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt & pepper

First of all, fire up your wood fired oven to its optimum temperature and leave until it reaches around 160-180°C.

Next, you can make your glaze. In a bowl, add your honey, mustard and balsamic vinegar and mix to combine.

Then, rub your ham with a good amount of salt and pepper. Using a brush, coat your meat with your glaze and place in a frying pan over a high heat until the skin is caramelised.

Now it’s time to place your ham in your wood fired oven. Allow time to cook for around 35-40 minutes, making sure to brush the ham with the glaze every ten minutes or so. Your ham will be cooked when the core temperature reaches 68°C.

Once you are happy that you ham is fully cooked through, remove it from your wood fired oven and let it rest for 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with chips and a fried egg! Tasty!
