I love ham that tastes like HAM. I would suggest using a Turkey sized oven bag to heat the ham - it really protects the meat and keeps it moist. Read More

I loved this ham recipe. I did use a oven bag as suggested in another review. I made a big pot of beans with the ham bone and for once the beans didn't have a sweet taste to them. This will be the only way I bake a ham. Great job, simple is always better. Read More

I find this to be a good recipe to build on. I mixed the chicken broth with gravy, pepper and garlic and cooked at a lower temperature for a longer time and it came out great. Of all the food I made for Thanksgiving (not including dessert), this was the most popular. Read More

Loved this. It allowed the smoke flavor in the ham stand out and was much better for left overs than a sweet baked ham. Did take longer than noted about an extra hour. Read More

This came out really good!!! For so simple a recipe it had great ham flavor everyone kept saying how juicy the ham was. I basted every 20 min or so with the juices as stated covered in foil and let the game rest about 20 min before slicing. Not dry at all and I even cooked my ham a bit longer. I will definitely make this again. Read More

I'm trying to cut the sugar use in our home and this recipe was perfect for that. We enjoy ham but not all of the sugary sweetness of a glaze. I cooked a 9 lb. ham using chicken broth except I cooked it at 325 for 2 1/2 hours. The meat came out tender and delicious . I saved the juices in the refrigerator, scraped the fat off the top and will use the remaining juices, along with the bone, for a pot of soup. Thanks for a great and simple recipe! Read More

I love this as my family also does not like sweet ham. I have made this many times and I add garlic cloves to the broth. Read More

I used the slow cooker instead. I put in the broth then the ham. I had to make a few adjustments but it still worked fine. My wife is diabetic so we can't do the sugar thing Read More
