Bill Faulkner's Grilled Ham

Bill Faulkner was our dear friend and neighbor in Belzoni. At the first word of a death or sickness in town, his wife, An, sent word to Bill to fire up the grill and start the ham. Grilled ham was their standard dish to take to anyone in need. He was famous for it. This is recipe number one in my Life of a Morgan Ham series. Over the next week or so, I plan to share several dishes I make using a ham. We usually begin by cooking our ham for Sunday lunch and serve alongside a couple of dishes such as Sharon’s Hash Brown Casserole and Marinated Green Beans. After lunch, remove as much ham as you can from the bone and store in the refrigerator for other uses during the week. Put the ham bone in another zip lock and store in the freezer for later.
