When planning how many hams you need, assume that each person will be 4-6 ounces with all of the other traditional fixings for the holiday. If you are planning on the hams being a centerpiece, assume 8 ounces per person...
- 12-15 Servings per person as part of the whole holiday meal
- 10 Servings per person for a centerpiece meal.
Order more, get it portioned and freeze it. These hams makes some of the best sandwiches and soups ever!
- Heat the oven to 275.
- Rip a piece of foil that is big enough to cover the ham.
- Put the ham fat side up in the middle of the foil.
- Remove the string that wraps the ham. NOTE: Don’t pull it up when it sticks, pull it vertical so it slides out.
- Using a coarse salt, spread salt all over the ham. Our hams are not overly salty and more savory.
- Gather up the foil and pack it around ham and leave a 1" x 4" vent open on the top. If you have it, add the finishing salt in the vent.
- Put on a pan that catches any fat if the foil breaks.
- It will take 1.5 hours or so to heat up. Use a thermometer (140-145 degrees fahrenheit) or poke a small knife in the middle and feel the tip with your lips, if it is warm, it is ready. It is fully cooked and remember you just want to reheat!
- Scrap the excess salt onto a small plate and use it on the ham as you would a finishing salt.
- Pink Pig BBQ Sauce is more spicy now, so put it on the ham slices as you eat it.
These hams originate from butcher cut called the "Boston Butt". It is not trimmed or pressed and the ham will have more fat between the meat. Cut it out to your preferences and always keep a little fat as "that is flavor" and it is excellent.
