How to Make Rotisserie Holiday Ham:

  • Remove ham from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Set up your rotisserie unit per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Remove any moisture from the ham by blotting the surface with paper towels. Thread rotisserie rod through the ham and secure the forks. Place the ham onto the rotisserie unit with the aluminum drip pan underneath.
  • Cook your rotisserie holiday ham over medium-low heat (300 degrees) for about 15 minutes per pound of meat, or roughly 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Look for an internal temperature of 150 degrees F before glazing the ham.

Glazing and Serving: 

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat and add honey and the remaining glaze ingredients. Stir the mixture, and set on low. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until well combined. Remove from heat, cover, and keep warm. 
  • During the last 15 minutes of cooking time, brush the rotisserie holiday ham with the glaze. Close the lid of your grill and let the ham continue cooking for the remaining time.
  • Next, turn the heat off, but allow the rotisserie unit to keep running for an additional 10 minutes. After that time, switch it off.
  • Using heat-resistant gloves, carefully remove ham from the rotisserie unit with the rod and forks still intact.
  • Place it onto a clean cutting board and tent with aluminum foil. Let the ham rest for 10 minutes.
  • Remove forks and carefully pull out the rotisserie rod. Slice rotisserie holiday ham to desired thickness and serve with our Twice Baked Potato Casserole!
