Some will love this, some won't. We LOVED it. If you like dishes like pulled pork or a potroast that falls apart in shreds, this is a great way for you to prepare ham. It gets all the meat and flavor off the bone and there is very little waste, though you have to be willing to pick through the mass of meat and discard little bits of gristle and fat. I don't think you need to find the "picnic ham" that the recipe lists (I think it suggests that kind because it is cheaper and because this recipe allows you to get all the meat off the bone). You can use any smoked ham, alhough, as others have suggested, stay away from the spiral sliced hams. Get an unsliced one. Speaking of spiral sliced, if your idea of ham is beautiful, pink slices on a holdiday plate, this is probably not the recipe for you. For that kind of a presentation, the ham should just be heated through or glazed a bit. But if you like a pile of delicious meat to pick through that is tender, juicy, and flavorful, try this recipe. I prepared exactly as instruted except also put a few slices of pineapple on top in the crock pot (no juice) and just a sprinkle of ground cloves on the brown sugar. Neither was necessary, though.
