How to cook a honey baked ham ?

Han Lukito Dec 24, 2003 12:34 PM

I bought a large (10 lbs) bone-in ham-hickory smoked and am trying to prep a honey baked ham for the first time. Not sure if it says cooked or not but the instructions say it needs to be put in oven 10 minutes per pound at 325 F.

What is the simplest way to make a honey baked ham ?

How about just plain sugar ? Will it have similar effect ? Or close enough ?

Or any other ideas ?

    Han, an old chowhound hand like you should know a cooking question like that goes on the general topics board!

    If it says 325 for 10 min/pound I'd assume it's cooked and you're just reheating it.

      This is not a Honey baked, but I made this and it was delicious, a back up if you can't find what you are looking for. From www.foodtv.com
