Difficulty Level: Intermediate


1 boneless ham, 2kg

Orange Honey Glaze:

1/2 cup honey

juice and zest of 1 orange

4 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 large sprig fresh thyme


1.5kg baby potatoes

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves of garlic, crushed


Score And Spit The Ham:
  1. One hour before cooking, remove the ham from its wrapper and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Cut the rind of the ham in a 2cm diamond pattern, cutting about ½cm deep.
  3. Skewer the ham on the rotisserie spit, securing it with the spit forks.
  4. Let the ham rest at room temperature until it is time to grill.
Orange And Honey Glaze:
  1. Simmer the glaze ingredients over medium heat, stirring often, until the butter melts.
  2. Remove the glaze from the heat and set it aside until it is time to glaze the ham.
  3. Reheat the glaze right before using.
Cooking The Ham:
  1. Set the grill up for indirect medium-low heat (150°C) with the drip pan in the middle of the grill.
  2. Don’t start the burner(s) directly under the ham.
  3. If you’re on the Fusion 600 then use the ceramic burner.
  4. Put the spit on the grill, start the motor spinning, and make sure the drip pan with water is centered beneath the ham.
  5. Close the lid and cook.
  6. At the 45 minutes mark replace the drip pan with the potatoes in the disposable foil baking tray.
  7. The ham is cooked when it reaches 60°C in its thickest part, about an 1.5 hour for a 1.8kg ham.
  8. It should take about 18 minutes per 500g of ham, but thickness matters more than weight, so check the temperature every hour.
  9. During the last half hour of cooking, brush the ham with the reheated glaze every 10 minutes.
  10. The ham should be caramelized and slightly charred and potatoes golden and tender.
  1. Cook the potatoes in a saucepan of boiling, salted water for 15 minutes or until just tender.
  2. Drain
  3. Place in a large disposable foil baking tray.
  4. Add oil and garlic.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Toss to coat.
  1. Remove the ham from the rotisserie spit.
  2. Be careful, the spit and forks are blazing hot.
  3. Let the ham rest for 15 minutes, then carve and serve.


Tip 01 Tip 01

If you are cooking with charcoal, add 14 fresh coals after an hour, splitting them between the two piles of lit charcoal.

Tip 02 Tip 02

When the coals are covered with gray ash, pour the charcoal in two equal piles on the sides of the grill, and put the drip pan in the middle with water, 2cm deep, between the piles.
