comment Xmas ham on the BBQ
@PeterJ Thanks for replying, I only just noticed, apologies for not acknowledging it earlier. Yes, it was a cooked leg ham. For the record, I scored the fat, added cloves and glazed it in a honey, maple syrup, Dijon and brown sugar mix. I found a burner combination, on the BBQ, that stabilised around 180c (though I started it higher to crisp the fat), then cooked it for about an hour (re-glazing every 20 minutes). It came out brilliantly, and we are still enjoying the leftovers (stored in a vinegar soaked pillow case in the fridge). Will definitely do it again.

comment Should I read ingredient weight as prepared or unprepared weight?
I completely agree. As I stated, I do get creative after I've tried the 'as is' version a couple of times. It's just my pedantic developer nature I suppose :) It's when a recipe calls for 60g or 90g instead of, respectively, 50g or 100g I start to wonder why the precision is there.

So, I should take the recipe as it is grammatically intended. It makes sense. Apologies for the almost dupe, I did look around first, I obviously missed the correct keywords

comment Should I read ingredient weight as prepared or unprepared weight?
I do realise this question does show my programmer mindset a bit, as cooking tends not to be about strict precision, however, I do like to cook a recipe as intended by the writer the first couple of times before getting too creative with it.
