How do you like your watermelon? Do you like it with other fruits in a salad or as a glass of juice? Ok, maybe you don't like it at all. But you may not know about this one way of eating watermelon that has left the whole internet confused. This restaurant in NYC serves this dish that they call ' 'Holy hot watermelon ham' wherein they smoke watermelons like hams. Yes! We're not kidding and if you love your ham, we're sorry but it is true. The appearance though as a stark resemblance with real ham but it really is a watermelon.
The process of making one of these is very similar to how you would smoke ham after marinating it. For those who would see it at first glance are sure to be tricked, however, the taste might put them off hams forever, so you may want to try it at your own risk.
Take a look at this video of the chef cutting the watermelon ham:
