Okay this is the first time I have EVER made a ham...I know sad. I am having all the IL's over Saturday for our Christmas party and I am making a ham and turkey. So I am thinking of making them both in rosters to free up the over for other stuff. Anyone want to share how or what the put in their hams when making them....brown sugar, beer is all I have heard so far???

Every ham I have ever purchased has had directions on the ham. Some come with a packet of glaze that you add near the end of the heating process. Is yours from a butcher thus it doesn't have any glaze packet with it?

I did a ham for thanksgiving in a roaster for the same reason. I wrapped it completely in foil and basted it with orange and pear juice several times for 1/2 hr, then brushed on honey and brown sugar mixture and cooked it for about 1 more hour. It was a spiral sliced ham so it was already cooked. I usually get a honey baked but trying to keep the cost down thought I'd try it. Everyone liked it better than honey baked! It saved me $50 too! Just get a good quality ham.:gdlicklips:
