I was only feeding four with this recipe, and so I didn't want to spend the money for a ham still on the bone. I used a Honey Baked Ham instead that was ten dollars less. I did put the ham with a little water in the slow cooker for about 4 hours just to see if I could get the juices flowing, and get a texture similar to a ham with a bone in it. I don't know if I was exactly successful, but I was still pleased with the outcome. I used half spicy brown mustard, and half regular deli mustard. The ham was sweet, and and a lot of flavor without covering up the natural flavors of the ham. I would say if you want the mustard to be stronger reduce the amount of brown sugar. But, the sweet taste was really good. I thought I would want a pickle but I didn't even think about it after one bite. I think for a short cut you could get thicker cut deli ham. Maybe warm for an hour and than maybe shred a little or cut into smaller pieces, and than add the mustard and brown sugar. This is really a step up from a BBQ pork sandwich. A little bit more classy.
