  • 8 pound bone-in smoked ham Note 1
  • 10 whole cloves
  • 1 cup beer
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard


  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
  • Score the smoked ham making ⅓-inch cuts about ½-inch apart. The pattern will form diamond cuts on the ham.
  • Place whole cloves in various crevices of the diamond pattern. Wrap ham completely in foil. Place water in the bottom of a baking pan. Place the ham on a rack in the baking pan.
  • Bake in the oven 15 minutes. With one hour left to go brush glaze half the glaze over ham. Close foil, bake another 15 minutes. Brush remaining glaze on the ham. Brush glaze two more times with glaze. 
  • Use either a gravy syringe or a large spoon to scoop the glaze from bottom of ham in the foil to reglaze ham. Cover with foil. The internal temperature should be 140 degrees when ham is complete.
