Baked Honey Glazed Ham

By: Traeger Kitchen

Heed the call of the outdoors and prepare your Kurobuta ham on a wood pellet grill. Honey just might be the original ham glaze and combined with butter and cloves, it smells and tastes like your favorite childhood holiday memory.

As a bonus, cooking the star of your feast outside frees up the kitchen for side dishes and baked goods.
