How To Cook A Hagberg’s Ham

Hagberg’s Applewood Smoked and Double Smoked Hams are moist, tender, and delicious. Available in both boneless and bone-in, our hams are the ideal centerpiece for your holiday feast.

Our Double Smoked Ham starts with an expert smoking. Then, (you guessed it) we smoke it again. The second smoke adds an extra kiss of smokey flavor and enhances the juiciness and texture of the meat.

We smoke our Applewood-Smoked Hams with applewood chip embers. The applewood chips give the ham a subtle, sweet, smokey flavor that complements our ham glaze nicely

How To Cook A Hagberg’s Ham

Cooking Hagberg’s ham couldn’t be easier. Bake uncovered in a baking pan for 12 minutes per pound in an oven preheated to 325°F or until the ham’s internal temperature reaches 140°F. Brush the ham with our glaze for the last 20 minutes of baking.

For a half ham, we suggest putting it cut side down in the pan and adding 8-12 ounces of chicken stock. As the ham warms, the stock will pull up to prevent drying. We’ve found chicken stock to be a better option than plain water. It is quite neutral but won’t “dilute” the ham’s natural flavor.
