"This recipe turned out perfectly! The end result wasn't too sweet. It had just the right balance of sugar and spice to offset the saltiness of the ham. When rubbing the dry mixture on the ham, I suggest pressing some of the mixture into the score marks to allow the flavors to touch more than just the surface of the ham."

"This ham turned out delicious and moist. I did wrap it in foil after the first hour of baking and I basted it every 20-30 min. Mine was 11 lbs so it took closer to 2 hours to heat. Many compliments."
