How do I cook a shank ham?

It's 10 1/2 lbs. shank ham. How long and at what temp. The package said 30mins per 1/2lb but that seems like a lot.

    8-10 lb. smoked shank or butt

    1 tsp. cloves, ground

    1 tsp. allspice

    1 tsp. nutmeg

    1 tsp. brown sugar

    1 (12 oz.) Cocoa Cola

    Aluminum foil


    4 tbsp. honey

    2 tbsp. brown sugar

    1 tsp. Dijon mustard

    1 tsp. rum (opt.)

    Cloves, allspice & nutmeg

    Place enough aluminum foil in baking pan to completely cover ham. Place ham on foil. Pour Coke over ham. Mix the spices and rub all over ham. Seal the foil. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes per pound.

    Remove ham from pan. Discard aluminum foil. Remove all but 1/2" of fat. Score ham by making slits through fat. Mix the same spices as above (cloves, allspice, nutmeg, brown sugar) with the glazing ingredients. Heat this to a liquid. Spoon this over ham as thickly as you can. It will be thicker if made a few minutes ahead and allowed to cool.

    Return ham to oven for another 20 to 30 minutes, uncovered, being careful not to burn.

    package should have a temperature listed on it too!

    I would go with 325F and bake it for 15 minutes per pound? since it is so large! You want it heated all the way through. Ham is already cooked by way of smoker! so all you have to do is make sure you have it heated all the way through.

    If you heat it at a lower temp then yes, to the 30 minutes per half pound! You could put it in the oven at night at 200F and cover it tightly with foil and have it ready for after church Easter Sunday.
