Spiced Barbecue Sauce Glaze

  • ¾ cup good-quality barbecue sauce (see tips)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons smokey paprika
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 ½ tablespoons malt vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard


  1. 1.
    Preheat oven to 180°C fan-forced.
  2. 2.
    Using a sharp knife, score the ham fat crossways at 1 cm intervals. Place ham on a greased rack in a large baking dish lined with foil (see tips).
  3. 3.
    To make the spiced barbecue sauce glaze, combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Stir and bring to the boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until thick and sticky.
  4. 4.
    Evenly brush ham with half of the glaze. Bake for 45-50 minutes, brushing the remaining glaze halfway through cooking, until deep reddish brown. Stand for 30 minutes.
  5. 5.
    Slice and serve ham warm or cold with extra Dijon mustard and coleslaw on the side.

General Information

For ease, place the ham in a disposable foil roasting dish.

We used Stubbs brand barbecue sauce for the glaze.  It has an excellent flavour.

For an extra kick of spice, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the glaze.
