The ham comes out juicy and tender every time. I don't know why it uses beer, but to me, it seems to take away a little of that over-bearing saltiness that can come with ham.
Once you've tried this, you'll never go pay for one of those expensive ones again. Turns out, ham is expensive enough already. Right?
1 can beer (not ale)
1/2 large onion, chopped
1/2 (4-5 lbs.) fully-cooked, bone in, ham (butt end)
1/4 cup ham drippings
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
Preheat oven to 325'F.
Place ham on rack in pan; pour beer over it. Place other ingredients in bottom of pan.
Cover tightly, and bake 3 hours, basting every half hour.
Now, make the glaze. Drain all but 1/4 cup of drippings; add 1/2 cup brown sugar & 1/2 cup honey to the saved drippings.
Raise oven to 400'F. Score ham, put cloves and pineapple, if desired.
Bake, uncovered, for 1/2 hour, baste every ten minutes or until skin gets browned and crusty.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. -1 Corinthians 13:2
