This makes the most moist ham ever!

1 15 pound precooked ham with bone
1 pound dark brown sugar
8 -10 12 oz bottles of your favorite beer. I usually go for a very dark brew
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 cups packed dark brown sugar
1/2 bourbon

Place ham in a deep roasting pan. Firmly pack 1 pound of brown sugar on all sides of the ham. Pour the beer around the pan. I fill the pan with about 3 or 4 inches left. Cover and bake at 325 degrees for 3 3/4 hours (15 minutes per pound).

One hour before the end of baking time pour all bout about 1 1/2 inches of beer out. In a small saucepan combine the honey, mustard, 2 cups dark brown sugar, and bourbon; heat until sugar melts. Bast the ham every 10 minutes with the mixture from the bottom of the pan and the bourbon glaze. Use all of the bourbon glaze before removing the ham from the oven.

Slice thinly and serve with sauce remaining in pan.

I always make this for Turkey Day and Christmas. What's cool, is it was always the kids favorite. Sarah now makes it on holidays for her family.
