Hey everyone,

I'm in a bit of a pickle (not really) but I want to make a somewhat perfect glazed ham.
It dont need no fancy cherries or anything.

I have an Uncle coming in two weeks and he's bringing his new wife..
Well Granny is not up to cooking so much anymore any and I want to make an impression. I dont need to for him or her..I just want to...

I have a spiral ham, it comes with a glaze and I do want to try to use some of that.

I have had bad luck in the past with getting hams to glaze, I'm doing something wrong. Alton Brown makes it look easy, TV can make dogfood look like chocolate cake though.

I know to cook it low at first then turn it up at the end to get the glaze to stick..

Anything i'm missing?
Maybe a recipe for a glaze that will stick?

There are so many types of glazes, but my favorite is a recipe called "Monte's ham". You can find it all over the internet. Every time I make it, people just rave over it, and it was the same at the party where I first had it, people couldn't stop talking about it. It's real easy, and can make a cheap ham taste good. (as well as an expensive spiral like yours) One thing I do change in the recipe is cloves, instead of adding whole cloves I just add a little pinch of ground cloves to the glaze before spreading it on.

I've heard many, many, MANY people rave about the Dr. Pepper Glazed Ham. I've not personally tried it yet (since I'm more of a turkey person) but I absolutely intend to try it. It intrigues me.

Just Google "Dr. Pepper Glazed Ham".

I don't care for the packets that come with Honey Baked Ham but my family does like ham on the sweet side. This Christmas I saw Pat Neely make a ham on the Food Network and I followed his directions, which worked very well. It involves a dry rub the day before, then a glaze during baking.

Here's his recipe and you can link to a video showing him making it.
