    How long do you cook ham at 375 before you start putting on the glaze? On the show it was already precooked (I think) and then glaze was put on per recipe

    • Flavor, NC says:

      Connie, the ham will cook for 1 hours and 30 minutes total. You cook it for 30 minutes in the juice mixture before adding the glaze for the additional hour.
