suggestions for cooking a ham?
 
Hey all.
WE have a huge chunk of ham in the freezer, its not one of those pre cooked ones, this is the real deal.

I have absolutely no idea on how to cook this thing...Any suggestions, tips? :):thumbsup:

Any chance you have a smoker? That's the only way I know how to cook hams... if you do, let me know, and I'll walk you through it. :)

This may sound silly, but what is a smoker?

Soak it in beer overnight if possible..but at least an hour... . just one can. Take the beer out but save it. Put it in your oven at 300 degrees for like 10-12 hours...depending on how big it is and baste it with the beer every once in a while.Do not let it cook in the beer or it will taste like it. But do add a little to it every once in a while. It will come out fall apart good. We aren't beer drinkers and it is awesome.

If you are not a beer person do an equal parts honey and water mixture... 12oz same size as a beer with the same directions as above. :) HTH

It was all new to me too. My dad always makes an awesome ham for Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year the ILs came for christmas so I made his ham.... Thinking on it now... I really don't think they deserve that good of a meal. LOL. J/K

Good luck with it. Be sure and tell me how it turns out.

What I did for our Christmas dinner was just put the thawed ham in a roasting pan, add about 2 inches of water, cover the pan tightly w/aluminum foil and put it in the over at 325 for 4-6 hours. The package said to bake 10 minutes per pound of ham. It was falling apart tender and super juicy! It was the first time I've ever cooked a ham and I was really glad it turned out so well.
