In a large pot, fill halfway with water and pour in Slap Ya Mama Seafood Boil.  Bring to a boil and place ham into the pot.  Boil for approximately 1 hour.  Remove ham and let drain and cool.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Trim top skin from ham leaving a little fat.  In a crisscross pattern, slice the top of the ham about ¼” deep.  Place ham in a roasting pan with a ½ cup of water in the bottom of the pan.  Pour coke evenly over ham.  Now season the whole ham with Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning.  Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue cooking for another 30 minutes or until there is a nice crisp on the exterior of the ham.  Carve ham, serve and enjoy!

    Please clarify, is this a raw ham or is this a smoked ham to start? Last year, following the above instructions, our ham was most definitely rare….. based off boil time and cooking times, I’d really enjoy having it turn out perfectly this year…….

      Use a meat thermometer Internal temperature siouldvreach 160F away from the bone. . Simmering a ham in boiling water first, then baking to finish it it cuts cooking time also. When the bone gets separated from the meat, generally your ham is cooked. So move the bone, if it’s loose, your ham is likely cooked, but a meat thermometer is the safest bet.
