Wow, this was an impressive way to cook ham! It was kinda tedious basting every 15 minutes but it was worth it because the glaze on the ham was incredible. We are going to make this again during the holidays.

what does "fat side" of ham mean?
CDKitchen Note: There is usually one side that has a layer of fat on it. That's the side you will score and stud with the cloves.

Best ham I've ever had!! My family raved about it for hours after we had eaten it. Luckily there were plenty of leftovers to share (we got a 10lb. ham which was more than we needed). I used Dr. Pepper instead of 7-Up, just because I would drink the Dr.Pepper that was left over more than the 7-up. We will definitely be cooking our hams this way from now on.
