I actually combined this with the 'Coke' recipe and got great results. Instead of the milk, I scored the ham and poured 1 12oz can of Pepsi Throwback (real sugar) all over the ham. I was prepared to use more, but that was all the 9x13 could safely hold. From there I followed the recipe by packing on the brown sugar (I used dark for more molasses flavor), and then the crushed pineapple. I used a 10lb ham, and it could really only hold 2 cans of the pineapple. I put the foil on so as to help keep the 'coatings', and even secured it with a few toothpicks. I let it sit overnight as directed. The next day I put the foil-covered ham in the oven @350F for 30min, but realized that people weren't going to want to eat in the next 30 min. So, I reduced the time to 275F and baked it for 4 to 4 1/2 more hours, basting with the juices every 100 min. or so (that's as high as my timer would go!) I checked it with the meat thermometer to be sure, and it was good to go. I was worried it might be too sweet, but it was great (and I don't particularly care for ham). We cut it a little on the thick side, like a ham steak, and you didn't even need a knife. My husband and dad loved it!
