John Tucker's Standing Rib Recipe

Smoked Turkey

Your smoked turkey is fully cooked and only needs to be reheated. Place in a pan or roaster, add a small amount of water to avoid drying out, cover with foil and reheat for 2 hours at 250 degrees.

John Tucker's Holiday Ham

Place the ham in enough heavy duty foil to completely wrap the ham, Score the top of the ham in 1/2 inch squares. Cover the top with pineapple rings, holding in place with half toothpicks. Put a maraschino cherry in each ring. Mix 1/2 cup brown sugar with a big squirt of yellow mustard, add enough orange juice to make runny, then pour on top of ham. Put 1/2 cup raisins on top of the ham. Close foil and put in oven or electric roaster for four hours at 325 degrees. After removing from heat and letting sit for 15 minutes, open top of foil and remove pineapples and cherries and set aside. Slice and place on two different trays, one with fruit and one without. For everyone to enjoy.
