We freeze ham often. It works out fine.

I no longer buy ham hocks as very few of them contain any meat on them anymore. I only purchase smoked neck bones - when I can find them - for a fraction of the cost However, even that costs more than the purchase of the entire ham when the latter is on sale.

EVERYTHING at Honeybaked is overpriced. The spiral honey hand at Costco are cheaper and just as good (we think they are better).

You definitely should not freeze deli thin slices. They become shredded when thawed. Ham needs to be packaged tightly with the juices in tact. Dry ham will come out become even drier and flavorless if kept in freezer too long.

... in ginger ale to reduce the saltiness. Precooked ("raw" hams are a rarity) and smoked hams can be frozen indefinitely so long as air is reduced or eliminated in the freezer container. Plastic wrap IS NOT a vapor barrier but combined with aluminum foil is a better method. Modern refrigerator constantly circulate air and thus dry out poorly wrapped foods. Better to couple plastic wrap with foil and a thick plastic container to "keep" the ham longer. I carve it into chucks to fit the containers to further eliminate air invasion. I find spiral cut ham to be much dryer and less favor-full then ham "on the bone."

Yes. I've done that many times.

Not that I know of.

I froze it all the time when I ran a cafe. It was fine for a few weeks even when it was sliced. Not sure how well it would keep longer than that.
