I have been issued a challenge. I am to fix the ham for Thanksgiving and I need the best kick-ass ham recipe, slow cooked to perfection, that there is. I quickly perused the previous posts and came up essentially empty-handed. [p]If anyone can help me out, I would sure appreciate it. I have a super anally retentive mother-in-law who will be sampling my wares at thanksgiving. Her big nose starts twitching at the slightest disagreable taste. All ideas receptive ... brining, slow cooking, favorite ham sauces, injecting, etc. I plan on a slow cook and really don't even have an idea of which ham to purchase ... picnic, bone in, bone out, brand name, etc., etc. I'm just not a ham guy (which is probably why the mom-in-law asked me to fix the ham). I think she knows I'm in enemy territory here.
