Ham Gift Certificates Put the Sizzle in BBQ Season

Weber Grills’ Kevin Kolman, grill master and blogger, loves a slice of moist, tender ham with a sugary crisp crust. He writes in “Take Your Grilled Ham to Another Level”:

“Now, I’ve made my fair share of ham, and can tell you without a doubt that the best way to achieve this is on a grill. The convection cooking your grill provides is unmatched. While the inside of your ham is cooked to perfection, the outside is browned perfectly with your favorite glaze. It doesn’t get any better than that.”

The succulent flavor of ham cooked on your grill is only one benefit. Your kitchen stays clean and there’s minimal mess on the grill. If needed, you can use your oven to cook desserts or side dishes while your ham grills!

Employees Select Their Own Ham Gift

gThankYou! Ham Gift Certificates are good for any brand of half or whole ham, at virtually all U.S. grocery chains.  Recipients choose what they want, when and where they want!

About.com’s barbecues & grilling expert Derrick Riches shares tips for successful selection and cooking in “Grilling Ham—Step by Step”:

Control the flavor and prevent outer burning by selecting a ham with a seasoning packet and not one already rubbed down with sugar and spice. Also, keep the heat low and indirect and to heat the ham through without overcooking it or drying it out.

The Secrets to Success

To help workers make the most of their ham gifts, share these grilling tips from Weber’s Kolman:

  • Do not change the cooking time on the recipe. Just because you roast your ham on the grill instead of in the oven, there is no need to alter any cooking times. A good rule of thumb is 12-15 minutes per pound when you stay between 225-250 degrees for a precooked ham.
  • Make sure you put your glaze on 10-15 minutes before you are going to remove your ham from the grill. This will be just the right amount of time for your glaze to caramelize and brown.
  • Let your ham rest. This will allow juices to run back into the ham, and hence, make it more moist. Plan on about 30-45 minutes for this step.

For adventurous grillers who don’t mind spending more time preparing their ham, here’s one more recipe link to share. Chris Schlesinger, chef and owner of East Coast Grill in Cambridge, Mass., posted instructions for delicious-sounding “Grilled Molasses and Rum-glazed Fresh Ham” at Epicurious.

Take it from the experts: a ham gift certificate is a perfect way to show your gratitude to employees and to help them celebrate summer.
