Although Llano Seco's Holiday Hams are fully cooked, heating in the oven enhances the flavor. Some customers like to slow-bake the hams at around 200 degrees while others prefer baking for a shorter period of time above 300 degrees. You can glaze your ham with your favorite glaze recipe or bake it au naturel.
For ham to be hot in the center, it must come to an internal temperature of 130 degrees.
Our simple heating instructions: Bring ham to room temperature. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bake for 10-12 minutes per pound. About 15 or 20 minutes before the total baking time is up, test with a meat thermometer to see if the internal temperature has reached 130 degrees. If so, you can remove from oven. Be sure to press the thermometer near the center, near but not touching the bone. Times may vary depending on your oven. Allow to rest 15 minutes before carving. Note: You can follow these same instructions whether you are glazing your ham or not.
