I made this today for Pascha (Easter). I used a 6 1/2 lb. ready-to-cook smoked half ham, shank end, and Boone's Farm Sangria. I changed the recipe slightly: I only used about a half pound of brown sugar, which covered the ham just fine. Also, I put the lid on the roasting pan after I added the first cup of wine & juice. After the next 20 minutes, I basted with all the rest of the liquid and re-covered the pan. I lowered the temperature to 325 at the end of the first hour, and continued basting each 20 minutes for a second hour, which brought it up to an internal temperature of 170, so it didn't need to cook longer. This ham was very moist and flavorful, with a smoky sweetness. I generally prefer a honey-baked ham, but this was almost as good. I also enjoyed how simple it was for such a good result.
