Although I love using the crock pot for ham, we didn't care for this recipe. Not sure whether the problem was the boneless ham, the glaze or some unfortunate combination of both. Won't make again.

I'm really glad that I made this recipe for our Christmas dinner. I did make one change and that was substituting the coke for white wine. I didn't have coke. It was really good and I received lots of compliments.

Terrible. I thought it would be tasty, since my boyfriend and I like all the ingredients, it is a weird sweet, seems to be lacking salt and acidity. There is no balance. Tried to doctor it up and nothing seems to make it any better. Will not be making this again. This has ruined my Christmas dinner.

Made this for the family at Easter, got rave reviews, so made again this week just for us! It's so simple and tasty, it's the only way I'll make a ham going forward. I was careful to cut across the grain, making every bite fall apart tender. It doesn't come out particularly sweet, I was using a Kentucky Legend ham, a honey ham or suchlike might turn out sweeter.

The sweetness of the rub plays beautifully against the saltiness of the ham. Make sure you use the type of ham that's specified, or the texture may not be that good. I also think the lower cooking time is best. I also used Dr. Pepper instead of Coke.

I have not tried this recipe as I just wanted to say that my mother worked at Sheppard Air Force Base during WW!!. I am still a Texan at heart. I lived in Wichtall Falls until I was 8 and then moved to Southern California. But, I am still Texan!!!!!!!

Yummy! The texture came out a little stringy, like meat often does from the slow cooker. More toward shredded or chunks of ham than sliced. But overall it was gobbled up and a super easy recipe. I used Dr. Pepper instead of Coke. I would make again.

I have not made this but for the woman who asked what she could substitute for the cola and sugar is use Zevia Cola which is sold in most grocery stores, it is a soda made without sugar but made with Stevia and use Stevia Blend in place of the sugar. Zevia comes in several flavors and really does taste like regular soda. You can get Stevia Blend on the internet.

Very tender and delicious, plus the fact that it is made in the crockpot makes it great for holiday meals since your oven is free for side dishes!
