You may want to check the label. Most hams (whether whole or cut) are already pre-cooked and all you have to do is heat it up. I usually heat mine for atleast 1 1/2 hour to let the juices soak in. I pour honey (or syrup) over mine and sprinkle the top with bown sugar. I also will baste the ham in it's juices while it's cooking (also helps to keep it from drying out). Oh yeah, oven temp would be about 300. Good luck

y dint you just but a pre cooked ham then u can just reheat!

7-8 min per lb on 325...you can't undercook it, because i'm sure it's smoked/cured if you bought it at the grocery store, so don't worry about that part, the worst that could happen is it would still be cold towards the bone...ewww.

You might want to invest in a meat thermometer if you don't have one.

I think you need to bake ham until it reaches 170 degrees F in the center, if its raw.

I usually cook mine at 350 and keep checking the temp every hour while it bakes. Depending on the ham, It might take a while to do a 7 pounder!

Enjoy! Baked ham is one of my faves!


i cooked a ham yesterday but mine was precooked i cooked mine on 275 for 3hours to heat it up they say 15 minutes per pound, i pour pear juice in the bottom of the pan, pour some honey all over the ham and brown sugar both in the pan and on the ham, i cover my ham with the lid or foil and baste every 30 minutes or so. My ham was 8lbs.

To bake a fully cooked 6 to 7 lb. ham half....
Allow the ham to sit at room temperature for about an 1-1/2 hours before baking. Place the ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan and bake at 325o degrees, uncovered, for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 140o, or about 15 minutes per pound.

To bake uncooked ham, remove any skin, trimming to 1/4-inch of fat. Let ham stand at room temperature for 1-1/2 to 2 hours before cooking. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Place ham on a rack in a shallow roasting pan, fat side up or cut side down. Bake until thermometer reads 160 degrees F. Let rest 15 to 20 minutes before carving.


I hope this was helpful,Take Care!!! :)


oh, good, so it's not a RAW hunk of meat, it's a smoked (cooked) ham. All you need to do it heat it up a little.

350oF for 60-75 min, cut side down. You can glaze it if you like. Below is my fave recipe, but you may want to cut it in half or even in fourths! Makes a lot of glaze!


Best Glazed Ham

1 (10 lb.) cured ham, bone-in

Glaze:
1? c. brown sugar
3 tsp. spicy brown honey mustard
1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple with juice
4 dashes Tabasco
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. fresh sliced ginger
hand full of cloves

Soak ham in water for 2-3 hours changing water every 45 minutes. Pat dry. Place ham cut side down in large roasting pan. Score ham in X’s w/ sharp knife, and place whole cloves in scored corners. Place all glaze ingredients into blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Gently and slowly pour glaze over ham, making sure it is totally glazed. Bake 2-2? hours at 300oF.. Tent with foil if browning too quickly during last hour.
