Chili Crusted Boar Ham

Fishing, hunting — if it’s related to the outdoors, O’Neill Williams will be there! Watch the “Outdoor Cooking on the Big Green Egg” segments each week on O’Neill Outside, airing on NBC Sports, SportSouth and SunSports. Check your local listings for times in your viewing area.

Remember, “If you’re too busy to go fishing or hunting, you’re just too busy!”


  • Heavy duty disposable roasting pan
  • 1 wild boar ham (regular ham can be used)
  • 6 oz chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 2 Tablespoons cumin
  • 4 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 12 oz can of Coca-Cola®


Set the EGG for indirect cooking at 300°F/145°C.

Place the ham in a Drip Pan. Combine all of the dry seasonings including the brown sugar and mix until they are mixed well. Pat the seasoning blend liberally onto the ham, covering it completely on all sides. Pour the Coca-Cola into the pan (but not over the ham) and cover very tightly with foil.

Place pan on cooking grid and bake for 4 hours or until tender. Do not open the foil while cooking. Remove from the EGG and let cool; shred with Big Green Egg Meat Claws and serve as sandwiches with Amy’s Coleslaw.
