  • Typically it's about 15-20 min per pound.

  • I buy mine precooked so it only needs to be "cooked" in the oven for about an hour.

  • That depends on how thick and big that piece of ham is that you want to cook. the thicker and bigger, the longer you need to cook it.

  • At any given weight? CUz the instructions are misleading. I end up overcooking it. Do you turn it half way?

  • Til it's done...just kidding! If it is pre cooked just until warm all the way through.
    If not get a meat thermometer and google what the inside temp should be. I know if it has a bone it will be a different tem than a boneless one. Be careful though ham gets dried out and gross if over cooked.

  • Depends on the ham. A whole ham (city ham), smoked or precooked but uncut, will take longer than, say, a spiral sliced ham; so anywhere from an hour to 2 hours for those. The time will also vary if there is a bone or no bone. Fresh ham (country ham), takes more time and it will depend on the size, how long it takes to cook. Country hams are not like the city hams, in taste or texture...they are closer to a pork roast than ham.
