This one looks good if you like smokey chipotle flavor. It does use pineapple and brown sugar though, but there are other spices.
Most of the recipes I am finding use sweeter ingredients.

The glaze is how you will keep the ham moist. If you don't want sweet then find ingredients (or substitute) that don't have a sweet finish. I find some that call for soda (Coke), dry or prepared mustard, maple syrup (wondering if you could sub agave nectar). I think ham is salty by nature, so adding more salt would possibly dry the meat out. I think using more mustard might cut down on the sweet flavor.
I hope someone posts recipes for a less sweet tasting ham. I am curious as to what you would use. Here's a bump!
