What’s your Easter meal main-dish of choice? For us, it’s always been ham! Super yum! There are so many ways to cook & prepare ham, but this year I think we might attempt grilling it! How does grilled ham with citrus glaze sound?!  Grilled Ham with Citrus Glaze


6 to 7 pound fully-cooked bone-in ham, trimmed
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 cup lemon marmalade, *
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed

* If you can’t find lemon marmalade, substitute another citrus marmalade.

Cooking Directions

Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium-hot (375 to 425 degrees F). Prepare the grill for indirect cooking: For a gas grill, turn off the center burner; for a charcoal grill, bank the coals on either side; place a drip pan under the grate between the heat sources.
Score a diamond pattern into the ham, about 1/8-inch deep into any fat. In a small bowl, combine the coriander, paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and cloves. Rub the spice mixture over all sides of the ham. Place the ham, flat side down, in the center of the grill over the drip pan. Cover and cook, adding briquettes to a charcoal grill as necessary to maintain the heat, until the internal temperature of the ham reaches 140 degrees F, 1 1/2 to 2 hours or 15 to 18 minutes per pound.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the marmalade, orange juice, and sugar.Brush the marmalade mixture over the ham. Cover and grill 5 minutes, until the glaze is lightly caramelized. Remove the ham from the grill, transfer to a cutting board, and let rest 15 to 30 minutes.


Yum!!! This is a perfect recipe for us here in the sunny deserts of Arizona. Not only do we have an abundance of citrus, but the weather is usually perfect for grilling at Easter. If you want to just roast the ham instead, that can totally be done. You can get roasting instructions, plus serving suggestions & nutrition facts here.

  2. Oh yum! I have baked and crock potted my ham and I love both ways. I have always used the rub that has come with the ham but I have been on the look out for more recipes. I will for sure have to try this one.

  3. I do one with brown sugar and orange juice after brining in sugar water for 24 hours plus…comes out like honey baked ham!

  4. I slice it thin and bake it in the oven in a honey garlic sauce. It comes out coated in sauce and tasting fabulous!

  5. My mom usually makes it and she cooks it in the oven. I can’t wait to try making it myself with my boyfriend’s help!

  9. The old fashioned way – with pineapple rings & cherries. If my nieces and nephews aren’t eating, then I do a mustard glaze instead.
